Australia has no dedicated minister for cyber security

Australia has no dedicated minister for cyber security

New Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison rewarded supporters and extended an olive branch to rebel right-wingers as he unveiled his "new generation" cabinet Sunday after taking power in a party-room coup.

The City of Sydney councillor said she had a strong record of championing Liberal Party values at a local government level.

"I have been preselected, I owe it to the Liberal Party first to inform them of my decision but I am going to take some time to consider my decision", she said.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has congratulated the newly-elected Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on his assumption of office.

"There was a lot of people on that list who would have voted for Julie".

The Liberal-National Coalition's primary vote dropped four points to 33 percent, the Newspoll showed, while the two-party-preferred split between Labor and the Coalition blew out from 51-49 in favor of Labor two weeks ago to 56-44.

Senator Cash, who has faced some criticism over her performance, voted for Morrison in the leadership spill on Friday.




Australia has endured a turbulent period in politics that has seen six changes in the top job in 11 years.

Julie Bishop will resign as Foreign Affairs Minister but has not decided whether she will stay in parliament after the next election.

Ms Auld said some traders were concerned that Labor policies to wind back negative gearing and capital gains tax discounts, plus potential shifts in industrial relations and wage policies, may be a negative for some business sectors.

"It was pretty lonely", the former lawyer said past year, adding that she would suggest ideas which were ignored until copied by her male colleagues. A formidable Foreign Minister and loyal deputy to three separate leaders over the course of a decade?

Under the new Morrison government, Communications Minister Mitch Fifield has also retained his position, while Karen Andrews has been appointed as minister for Industry, Science and Technology and Michael Keenan kept hold of Human Services and Digital Transformation.

Labor's Foreign Affairs spokeswoman, Penny Wong also recognised Bishop "for her trailblazing role as the first Australian woman" to be Foreign Affairs Minister.

Her Labor counterpart Penny Wong praised her "tireless work ethic", adding that her "commitment to standing up for Australia both here and overseas has never been in question".
