At least ten government ministers in Australia have offered to resign following a failed bid to oust Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull as party leader.
Mr Turnbull narrowly won a party room leadership vote yesterday but is now likely to face a second challenge. He accepted the resignation of his challenger, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton, and one other minister.
Turnbull is under pressure because of a long run of poor polling and a divisive energy policy. His centre-right coalition will face a general election by May next year, after recently losing a key by-election in Queensland. The opposition Labor party has accused the government of being in chaos.
