The former leader of Cornwall Council has stepped down as leader of the authority's Conservative group.
Alec Robertson was removed as leader of the Tory-Independent-led authority in October after a vote of no confidence.
The vote was held over the decision to push ahead with plans to part-privatise some key council services.
He stepped down at a group meeting on Friday night and has been replaced by Truro councillor Fiona Ferguson.
Ms Ferguson is one of the council's new cabinet members appointed by current leader Jim Currie.
