What's next for Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull

Australian prime minister abandons climate change targets | TheHill

Press Conference with the Foreign Minister, the Hon.

"On the basis of what we know, the Liberal Party should be able to win the election: the economy is going well, the country's at peace and urgent social and environmental issues are being addressed", he argued.

Despite the spill, Dutton said he had "no personal animosity" against Malcolm Turnbull, rather he felt he was the best person to ensure Opposition leader Bill Shorten never gains prime ministership. Unity is absolutely critical.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the resignation would not have any impact on the issues the government continues to raise across the ditch.

There would be closer scrutiny of energy companies buying and selling electricity internally between their own generation and retail companies at inflated prices.

That is what we must deliver and we deliver it united.

The prime minister, meanwhile, called for unity: "We can not allow, as I said in the party room today, our internal issues to undermine our work".

"If it looks like there's another attempt to dislodge him, he could try to lock his leadership in by taking the coalition to an election", said Nick Economou, senior lecturer in politics at Monash University in Melbourne. We have started to turn the corner on energy prices.

"We are seeing the strongest economic growth we have had for a long time, and past year was the strongest jobs growth in the history of the country".

The closeness of the vote has wounded Turnbull, who is now clearly leading a divided party.

Well, it's a secret ballot Sharri. "I think Tony Abbott, if not Peter Dutton, should be given another chance at it".

Finance minister Mathias Cormann said he had not heard any talk of some conservatives urging Dutton to challenge.

And it was a departure from his usual grim outlook as home affairs minister as he shook his fist at people smugglers and asylum seeker supporters. "It's not about him, it's not about me".

Esmatullah Muradi, a spokesman for the governor of Kunduz, told NBC News that more than 160 passengers aboard the vehicles were initially captured.

"My job is to keep Bill Shorten away from government", Dutton said. So, he is resigning.

Asked whether he had spoken with Mr Dutton, the prime minister said his cabinet colleague was at the leadership group meeting on Monday morning and had attended cabinet last night. We'll take one more.

"Over that period of time I have been assistant treasurer to Peter Costello and John Howard, with whom I work quite closely and to this day I consider a mentor".

Malcolm Turnbull has defeated Peter Dutton 48-35 after throwing the leadership open in a dramatic surprise move to catch his party enemies off guard.

It's a secret ballot, Katharine.

"My job from here, my next step, my job from here, that is to make sure I can prosecute the sort of messages that I have just spoken about and that is what I am focused on".

Mr Pyne said Mr Dutton had not indicated a challenge would be happening and condemned what he called a "media parlour game" on the leadership.

Turnbull's reversal and the political hullabaloo come amid a growing debate about climate change in Australia.

That is our job, looking after them.

Eric Abetz has said that, based on how things have gone in the past, we're probably looking at another challenge and, for the first time in his freaky laugh, this motherfucker is probably right. Were you anticipating a challenge from Greg Hunt?

Ironically, Turnbull has since exceeded Abbott's poor Newspoll record, despite having consistently rated as more popular as prime minister compared to Shorten.

Australia's stock market also fell more than one percent on Tuesday, its biggest drop in five months. Or put another way, 40 per cent of the caucus displayed no confidence in the prime minister.

Liberal members see Turnbull as "the best Labor leader the Liberals ever had", criticizing his push for same-sex marriage, his support for an Australian republic, and other causes favored by Labor and other left-wing parties. I would like to contribute to public debates.
