Australian political quakes not helpful - Peters

From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 23 August 2018

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is expected to face another vote on his leadership this morning as pressure continues to mount after Tuesday's failed bid by Peter Dutton. Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters says the political instability in Australia is not helpful to the region. Mr Peters has been in Canberra for the past two days holding meetings with his Australian counterparts. He told RNZ deputy political editor, Chris Bramwell, he had raised the Australia's deportation policies with the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
