On Monday Malcolm Turnbull is going to announce a reshuffle. It is expected that his frontbench will be intact.
There will not be any “large-scale changes” in the cabinet according to Prime Minister.
Julie Bishop, Deputy Liberal leader claims that she is satisfied by the works of the frontbench though some ministers were left at the election.
Ms Bishop commented the question about possible elevation of the former leader Tony Abbot. She said that he will unlikely be included.
Among the main beneficiaries of changes will be the Nationals. They will pick up an extra cabinet post in the outer ministry.
There are already 22 party room members in the junior coalition. The Nationalists received higher proportion of the joint party room.
Probably Queensland senator Matt Canavan will appear in the cabinet.
There are speculations on a reallocation of infrastructure-related portfolios to provide the election promises better.
Probably the Nationals will hold Liberal senator Mitch Fifield’s portfolio or a place in small business industry held by Kelly O’Dwyer.
A partyroom meeting which will take place in Canberra will be tense. The changes in the frontbench will be known after it.
Politics blame the superannuation changes for lost seats in the election.
According to Mr Turnbull he understands the concerns of colleagues and the community.
The election result frustrated and disappointed people, as many MPs wanted to get on with governing.
