Breaking News image

Australian High Minister Malcolm Turnbull has survived a problem to his leadership by a senior government colleague.

Mr Turnbull defeated House Affairs Minister Peter Dutton in a party room ballot in Canberra on Tuesday.

The prime minister won the vote FORTY EIGHT-35, the celebration’s leader whip informed reporters.

Mr Turnbull had prompted the vote himself in a bid to solve speculation that his leadership used to be under risk.
