New Australia Prime Minister Rewards Allies, Keeps Rebels In Cabinet

The Patersons Ian Dalys Don and Glenda are not impressed by the nation’s Liberal leaders

"As Australia's leading stateswoman, her strength of leadership and diplomacy make her a role model for not only young women, but all Australians", the Maslins said.

'For five years she has dedicated her life to our nation with a tireless work ethic and exhausting travel schedule. In Malcolm Turnbull's cabinet, Fletcher was the Urban Infrastructure Minister.

"I think that the Australian people are looking for answers and I hope that the political commentators will spell it out for them", she said.

In a statement, Ms Bishop said she had advised Prime Minister Scott Morrison of her decision.

Marise Payne, the former defence minister, was given the foreign affairs portfolio after incumbent Julie Bishop resigned Sunday.

Former premier Richard Court said she had been an extraordinary foreign minister and an exemplary local member of Parliament.

Renowned for her steely gaze dubbed the "death stare", Bishop's highlights as foreign minister include her strong condemnation of Russia's role in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines MH17 in 2014.

Bishop reaped the benefits of Labor's lobbying for a United Nations Security Council seat, making the most of it to tackle issues including Iran, Islamic State's rise in Iraq and Syria and shaming Russian Federation over the MH17 tragedy. The following year she played a key role in the worldwide response to Russia's shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine. A formidable Foreign Minister and loyal deputy to three separate leaders over the course of a decade?

She played a key role in healing the damage caused to relations with Indonesia by Labor's live cattle debacle, turning back boats and the Indonesian president phone tapping scandal.

Mr Dutton, whose first challenge on Tuesday sparked the crisis that ultimately toppled Mr Turnbull, returns as home affairs minister in an apparent attempt by Mr Morrison to rebuild unity in his badly bruised party. "She has set the bar for the next Foreign Minister very high".

"You have to have inexhaustible supplies of energy to be a federal politician from Western Australia anyway".

Her departure has raised questions about whether she fell victim to party politics and to a perceived glass ceiling for women in Canberra.

The 62-year-old Bishop had had been deputy leader of the ruling party since 2007 and failed to become prime minister in Friday's leadership ballot.

The male colleagues would suggest "exactly my idea, exactly my initiative... and the others would say, 'brilliant, what a genius idea!'" she said, putting down the behavior to an "unconscious bias".

Ms Bishop announced she would move to the backbench and had not yet decided whether to contest the next election, which is due by May 2019.
