Australia’s New PM Announces Cabinet

Australia’s new prime minister has announced a peace-making Cabinet that does not punish his rivals in a bruising power struggle that ousted his predecessor and divided a government that lags in opinion polls.

PM Scott Morrison returned rival Peter Dutton to the home affairs ministry.

Mr Morrison, who had been loyal to his predecessor Malcolm Turnbull, won a ballot of government politicians for the leadership on Friday against Mr Dutton.

Mr Dutton had demanded Mr Turnbull should prove he had the support of ruling Liberal Party politicians in a ballot.

Mr Turnbull resigned. Mathias Cormann, a party powerbroker who backed Mr Dutton, retained his finance portfolio.

Australia’s first female foreign minister, Julie Bishop, announced earlier on Sunday that she had quit the Cabinet.
