Turnbull Dutton Leadership Vote

Turnbull Dutton Leadership Vote

But the bill had support from lawmakers outside Turnbull's center-right Liberal Party, and it appears likely that the leader is caving to pressure from conservative members of his own party, according to the Times.

On Friday, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton was forced to hose down speculation he was prepared to make a tilt at the top job.

With both leadership positions spilled, the foreign affairs minister Julie Bishop's position as deputy Liberal leader was also opened, but she was the only one to nominate and was therefore re-elected.

Mr Turnbull's original energy policy, which was trying to deliver cheaper energy, more reliability and lower emissions, enjoyed broad support - even in his party room.

The close numbers, however, isn't great news for Turnbull moving forward.

Despite Mr Turnbull's capitulation to energy policy rebels in his ranks, the expectation his leadership is under threat has grown.

"He's told me Malcolm Turnbull has his absolute support", Pyne told the Sunrise host.

Mr Pyne described his Liberal colleagues stoking leadership tensions as "cowards".

"I think people would be horrified if the government changed leader again".

While Coalition marginal seat holders have publicly supported Mr Turnbull, some privately lobbied in favour of Mr Dutton to improve the party's chances in Queensland.

"It is always orderly in our party room", Marino said.

Dutton has now resigned from the ministry, as expected, and we could see further Dutton backers step down from the frontbench after their attempted coup.

Adding to the prime minister's woes have been a string of poor poll results. The next day Tony Abbott challenged but then declared he would back Joe Hockey. "We've had Rudd to Gillard, Gillard to Rudd, Rudd to Abbott, Abbott to Turnbull", he said.

But Treasurer Scott Morrison said was "fully supportive" of the Prime Minister. Mr Abbott told reporters outside Parliament House on Monday evening.
