Canberra, July 5: Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Tuesday rejected opposition calls for his resigtion. On Monday evening, opposition Labour Party Leader Bill Shorten called for Turnbull to quit as leader of the Liberal tiol Party coalition, claiming that the premier was “out of touch” and was uble to provide parliamentary “stability” which he promised to Australian voters throughout his campaign, Xinhua news agency reported. But on Tuesday, Turnbull said he would not be stepping down from the position and described the Labour leader’s attack as purely political. “Well, he would say that, wouldn’t he?” Turnbull said of Shorten, “I’m sure he would (like me to resign).” “I don’t think we’ll be taking advice from the leader of the opposition, I think he couldn’t think of anything else better to say.” (IANS)
