Australian PM Turnbull clings to power after surviving party leadership challenge

Australian PM Turnbull clings to power after surviving party leadership challenge”

Mr. Dutton supporters say the former police drug squad detective could have amassed enough support to successfully challenge for the leadership on Thursday before Parliament takes a two-week break and lawmakers won't gather again until September 10.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says his government has abandoned plans to set an emissions reduction target in legislation. As the champion of the Liberal Party's conservative wing, he succeeded where predecessors such as Scott Morrison had failed, in creating Home Affairs, a super-security department that rolls in ASIO, the Australian Federal Police and other security agencies.

"My job is to keep Bill Shorten away from government", Dutton said. In the situation that the government's in now, and destined to lose the next election to Labor, astoundingly, maybe Tony Abbott would've been the alternative to take on this position.

Until yesterday, Mr Dutton was the most powerful minister in Mr Turnbull's Cabinet.

"Definitely had enough of this, I think that it's bad for the stability of the nation", said law student Renata Labio.

'If we are fighting amongst ourselves, guess what, when the voters go to the election, they'll mark us down as they should, ' Mr Laundy said.

White House Calls On Turkey to Release American Pastor Andrew Brunson
Speaking as he left the White House on Friday, Trump told reporters on the South Lawn: "They have a wonderful Christian pastor". Turkey has responded by declaring that it will raise tariffs on a number of USA imports, including cars, tobacco and spirits.

A social liberal and multi-millionaire former merchant banker, Turnbull rode an early wave of popular support but his standing has diminished significantly.

Mr Turnbull will next month become Australia's longest serving prime minister since Howard, having held the office for three years and four days.

"It's a complete capitulation to the right-wing members of the Liberal Party of Australia", said Robyn Eckersley, Professor and Head of Political Science at University of Melbourne.

Then Home Affairs Minister Dutton was revealed as the conservative challenger, backed by Abbott and others as the best hope of retaining office in the 2019 poll.

A Morgan poll of more than 1,200 voters found they picked Mr Turnbull as the better prime minister over Mr Shorten, 52 per cent to 44.5 per cent. "I will work every day to make sure the Coalition is elected at the next election and I want to make sure I support the Prime Minister and make sure that we support the government's policies".

A spokesman for Mr Dutton told Ten: "Mr Dutton's legal advice clearly states there is no breach of Section 44".

The Liberal leadership was declared vacant at the start of the party room meeting at 9am.

Dutton did not rule out another challenge as he thanked his colleagues for their support.

The prime minister entered the party room with his deputy Julie Bishop amid speculation about his leadership.

In his parliamentary register of interest, Mr Dutton lists himself as a beneficiary of RHT Family Trust - along with his wife and children.

In April a year ago, the High Court ruled that then Family First Senator Bob Day was not validly elected to parliament, due to his breaching Section 44.
