When the leadership of Australia under Prime Minister Tony Abbott was challenged and won by Malcolm Turnbull last month, it was only a matter of days before the new cabinet in parliament house also received a reshuffle.
The position of of Minister for Immigration and Border Protection was bestowed upon Mr Peter Dutton in 2014 under the Abbott cabinet and has remained in this position throughout the recent change instigated by new Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Senator the Honourable Michaelia Cash whom was formally the Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection was appointed to Minister of Employment in addition to her existing role as Minister for Women.
The new Assistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs is Senator the Hon Concetta Fierravanti-Wells who was previously the Parliamentary Secretary for Social Services under the Abbott government.
Whilst a few of the roles and names and have changed, it will be a case of wait-and-see when it comes to changes in policies and immigration laws under the new Turnbull government.
