Sydney Before the national elections in Australia, there is another bad news for Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. In the bye-elections, his party had to face the defeat and it was seen as a weak hold on power.
Due to a new constitutional rule, due to the illegal appointment of dual citizens in the parliament, 5 members had to lose their membership. Of these 4 were opposition politicians while another was from the small party.
These bye-elections were seen as an important test for Turnbull and opposition Labor leader Bill Shorton, and the Liberal-National Coalition hoped that by winning these elections they would be able to further strengthen their minor majority in Parliament.
Throughout the signs of retaining its four seats in the Labor Party, the Shortton has definitely emerged as the winner in this bye election.
