Sex Scandal Australia: Deputy Prime Minister Refuses to Resign
Sex Scandal Australia: Deputy Prime Minister Refuses to Resign. In the already fragile government coalition in Australia, the quarrel has risen high after a sex scandal. Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce refuses to resign after an affair with his employee. Instead of being cautious, he then mocked Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull after he had sharply condemned his behavior.
Turnbull came yesterday with a ban on sexual relations between ministers and their immediate employees following the Joyce affair.
According to the prime minister, Joyce made a “huge error of judgment” by building it with his spokeswoman, who is now pregnant with the vice premier. Joyce, a married man with four children, had family values precisely in his campaigns. However, he refuses to leave and says he receives a lot of support from colleagues.
In addition, he reflects the ball back to the prime minister. According to Joyce, Prime Minister Turnbull with his convictions has now put even more emphasis on the coalition. The Turnbull coalition has the majority with only one seat.
According to the opposition, the government is currently in crisis. “The prime minister and the deputy prime minister are on a war footing, and that will not be possible for long,” said the leader of the largest opposition party.
Joyce is the leader of the National Party in the center-right government of Turnbull, who leads the Liberal Party.
