FourFourSeconds ago, Paul Murray announced his wife, Julie Bishop, would be his successor as prime minister.
His wife, the former Prime Minister of Australia, had only been in the job for a couple of months.
She had to get a new job, but she said she was excited and ready to make the transition.
“I am really excited,” she told the ABC’s The World Today program.
Paul and Julie have two children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Her husband, who is also a lawyer, has already served as prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and has been leader of the opposition in Parliament for more than two decades.
Julie Bishop has been a strong and independent advocate for the rights of Indigenous Australians.
She has been involved in numerous issues that are related to Indigenous Australians and their rights and is also the wife of one of Australia’s most prominent Indigenous politicians, Andrew Bolt.
Bishop is known for her commitment to reconciliation.
She said she wanted to make it clear that reconciliation and reconciliation with the Aboriginal community would not be compromised.
The marriage was announced on July 1, the day before the federal election.
Ms Bishop told FourFour that she was not ready to resign from the role of prime minister until the election was called, which she said would be in the coming weeks.
AAP/ABC Paul Murray Julie Bishop was the first person to be sworn in as the new leader of Australia in February.
But she has been in her job for less than two months, and said the decision to be the prime minister would be a difficult one.
“[I’m] not sure if it will be something I’ll be able to make happen,” she said.
It’s a big decision for me.
I don’t know if I can be happy doing it and then I think I’ll probably be in a position where I’ve got to leave the government because there are so many people who’ve given so much and it’s really been an honour.
