Min­is­ter re­signs in ex­penses scan­dal

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Aus­tralian Health Min­is­ter Sus­san Ley said on Fri­day she had re­signed from her Cab­i­net po­si­tion amid an ex­penses scan­dal that has proved to be an em­bar­rass­ing start to the year for em­bat­tled Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull. Her res­ig­na­tion will force a reshuf­fle on Turn­bull, the first since he took power in 2015. A Newspoll on Mon­day found Turn­bull and op­po­si­tion leader Bill Shorten to be Aus­tralia’s most un­pop­u­lar pair of po­lit­i­cal lead­ers in 20 years.
