SYD­NEY: The Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment ac­cused a New Zealand op­po­si­tion party on Wed­nes­day of con­niv­ing to bring it down by re­veal­ing that Aus­tralia’s Deputy Prime Min­is­ter, Barn­aby Joyce, is a New Zealand cit­i­zen, and thus in­el­i­gi­ble to sit in par­lia­ment. The out­cry over the deputy prime min­is­ter of a gov­ern­ment with a one-seat ma­jor­ity has led to rare ac­ri­mony be­tween the long-term al­lies. – Reuters
