PM THREAT­ENS TO QUIT AMID PARTY IN­FIGHT­ING

Calgary Herald - - WORLD -

Mal­colm Turn­bull, Aus­tralia’s prime min­is­ter, sig­nalled he could re­sign Fri­day fol­low­ing bit­ter in­fight­ing that has split the rul­ing Lib­eral party and left the na­tion fac­ing yet an­other lead­er­ship change. As the party’s civil war con­tin­ued and 13 min­is­ters re­signed, Turn­bull, a former in­vest­ment banker and self-made mil­lion­aire, said he would re­sign if a ma­jor­ity of Lib­eral MPs de­manded an­other lead­er­ship vote. On Thurs­day, Turn­bull’s op­po­nents were one sig­na­ture away from se­cur­ing the vote.
