The new prime minister said he would consider reshuffling the ministry at the weekend, although every minister would stay in their present roles for the time being and it would be “business as usual” this week.

Mr Turnbull said the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement was “a great point of division between us and the Labor Party” it would become a “great matter of discussion” over the remainder of the week.

Mr Turnbull is now on his way to Government House to be sworn in as Australia’s 29th prime minister. Already there are his wife Lucy, her father Tom Hughes – a former federal attorney-general – mother Christine, daughter Daisy, son-in-law James Brown and grandson Jack Turnbull-Brown.
