Australian ruling party set to choose new prime minister
Updated : August 24, 2018 08:24 AM IST
Beleaguered Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull demanded the names of lawmakers in the conservative Liberal Party who wanted him to go before he would allow them to choose a new prime minister at a meeting at Parliament House today.
Turnbull would then become the fourth prime minister to be dumped by his or her own party before serving a full three-year term since the revolving door to the prime minister's office started in 2010. The trend is universally hated by Australians.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop is among the favourites and would be Australia's second female prime minister.
