Support for Australia's ruling party hits 10-year low under new PM

Julie Bishop arrives in the House of Representatives at the Parliament House in Canberra Australia

Following the PM's declaration that he would not be a candidate if the meeting passed a spill motion, Scott Morrison, the party's treasurer, and Julie Bishop, who served as both foreign minister and deputy Liberal leader, declared that they would be candidates if that happened.

Bishop did not say whether she planned to stand in the next federal election in May 2019.

Turnbull then relinquished his prime ministership on Friday after a second leadership spill that saw former Treasurer Morrison defeat Dutton 45-40 in a party vote and be sworn in as Australia's 30th prime minister on Friday night.

"Be aware that this is a ruse trying to get her ahead of Morrison so he drops out and his votes to Dutton".

He thanked his supporters, adding: "Former prime ministers are best out of Parliament, not in it, and I think recent events best underline the value of that observation".

Sydney's wax museum, no longer able to match the pace with which Australia changes its prime ministers, has stopped trying to model them.

Both people, like others, spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to discuss private discussions. Trump has always maintained he knew nothing of the meeting beforehand.

On Sunday, Morrison selected a new cabinet, naming former Defense Minister Marise Payne to replace Bishop as foreign minister, ABC News reported.

That decision could have major implications for Morrison's government, which has a parliamentary majority of just one seat.

As assistant environment minister, Ms Price has been responsible for climate adaptation and resilience, biodiversity, chemicals, waste, air quality and ozone policy, and was the director of Australia's national parks.

Dutton maintained his role as minister for home affairs, but he created a new position to handle issues related to immigration and appointed David Coleman.

"Today we have lost Australia's finest Foreign Minister", Turnbull wrote.

Mr Shorten said changing the leader from Malcolm Turnbull to Mr Morrison changed nothing.

Those comments provoked the ire of former United midfielder Paul Scholes, who said there was "no defence" for such remarks. He also declined to answer a question about what sort of test Tottenham will present.

The energy and environment portfolios, which used to have the same minister, have been severed under Mr Morrison's newly unveiled ministry.

Meanwhile, Turnbull, the outgoing Australian Prime Minster said, "we are the most successful multicultural society in the world, and I have always defended that and advanced that as one of our greatest assets", he said.

Josh Frydenberg was voted in as deputy leader by his colleagues and given the treasury portfolio on Friday.

After a week of chaos and infighting in his party the Prime Minister Scott Morrison has declared the healing starts now.

According to Newspoll, 29 percent of voters believe Bishop would be the best leader of the Liberal Party compared to 25 percent for Morrison and 14 percent for Turnbull.
