sydney - In the already fragile government coalition in Australia, the bonje is now high. Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce refuses to resign after an affair with an employee. Instead of putting on the fines, Joyce mocked Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull because he sharply condemned his behavior. The Turnbull coalition has the majority with only one seat.
Turnbull came Thursday with a ban on sexual relations between ministers and their direct employees. 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.
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 leader of the National Party in the center-right government of Turnbull, who leads the Liberal Party.
