Australia: WA Liberal MP Julie Bishop questions merit of male MPs

Article here. Excerpt:

'The nature of Australian politics would improve if there were more women involved, former foreign minister Julie Bishop has declared, while suggesting some of her male counterparts had risen through the parliamentary ranks without merit.

Ms Bishop, who quit her position after attracting just 11 votes in the leadership ballot that made Scott Morrison the prime minister, said there were questions across the world about the demise of Malcolm Turnbull.

The long-standing member for Curtin has signalled she will remain in her seat, though rumours continue to swirl she may step aside if a good female Liberal candidate could be found to replace her.

Ms Bishop, who was the only woman in Tony Abbott’s first Cabinet, said the absence of women from the parliamentary system was changing its nature.

Asked if a more equitable split on gender lines would lift the tenor of politics, she agreed.'
