Australia has no dedicated minister for cyber security

Australia has no dedicated minister for cyber security

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has restored Peter Dutton to his first cabinet, moving quickly to heal wounds from the Liberal Party's civil war.

Turnbull tweeted she "has been and remains an inspiring role model for women here and around the world".

Bishop's resignation creates more unrest amidst the upheaval of the Liberal National Coalition government, as new Prime Minister Scott Morrison works to patch together a cohesive cabinet from the opprobrium of the Liberal party's civil war last week.

She said Mr Morrison's close ties with New Zealand will be helpful as they build their relationship.

The Australian foreign minister resigned yesterday after leaked messages showed that her colleagues had plotted to ensure that she was defeated when she put herself forward to become prime minister.

Ms Bishop admitted the events of the past week had taken a heavy toll personally and questioned the logic of Liberals who were determined to tear down her "dearest friend" Malcolm Turnbull. Bishop, the party's deputy leader, reportedly secured just 11 votes out of 85 in the first round - significantly lower than Morrison and the third challenger, Peter Dutton.




"I think in politics, especially in the Liberal party, it is far too easy to change the leader", she told ABC radio.

It is understood her only request of Mr Morrison was that NSW senator Marise Payne should succeed her as Foreign Minister.

Morrison, who has often spoken of the strong relations between the two nations, understands the importance of foreign investment in Australia, said Holden.

"Malcolm Turnbull was a great leader and we will remain close friends in the years to come", Mr Laundy said.

Communications minister Mitch Fifield also made a return to the cabinet in the same position after resigning on Thursday, as did minister for human services Michael Keenan, who had his remit as assistant minister for digital transformation upgraded to a full portfolio.

The new foreign minister's big challenge will be navigating a tricky relationship with China, Australia's top trading partner.
