  • The Libs Have Just Voted To Make It Harder For The PM To Be Knifed

The ousting of Rudd, Julia Gillard, Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull sparked a decade of leadership wars within both the major parties and led to claims the revolving door prime ministership has made Australia an worldwide joke.

The Liberal party was "willingly and enthusiastically putting this constraint to return the power of these decisions about who is prime minister in this country to the Australian people".

Mr Morrison said the change would ensure the party meets community expectations while drawing a line under the instability of recent months.

In an unplanned meeting that caught many Liberal MPs off guard, Mr Morrison's colleagues agreed to make it harder to replace a sitting Liberal prime minister.

Moderate-aligned members of the NSW Liberal Party's executive committee have reportedly chose to abstain from a vote on using emergency powers to guarantee Mr Kelly's position.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison will call for new rules to be introduced around the changing of leaders.

He will remain the Liberal candidate for the seat at next year's election after the NSW party executive bowed to the Prime Minister's wishes, rather than risk further embarrassment and the defection of yet another Government MP to the burgeoning Lower House crossbench. "We acknowledge it, and we take responsibility for it".

Senior Labor figures were yet to respond to the change, but Tasmanian senator Lisa Singh said it was unlikely to end what she described as chaos inside the Morrison Government.

"I'm not allowed to talk about what happens in party room, otherwise the whips would do really bad things to me", Mr McGrath said.

Ms Merkel has been leading Germany since 2005, which covers part of John Howard's reign, plus that of Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, Mr Rudd again, Tony Abbott, Malcolm Turnbull and now Mr Morrison.

Immediately after Mr Turnbull's knifing, Mr Rudd called for the Liberal Party to follow Labor.

Mr Turnbull argued that the Liberal Party brand was being so "severely damaged" that it was imperilling the NSW Liberal Government led by Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

Labor has already moved to stop leadership spills.

In the wake of the spill Morrison was publicly urged by colleagues including now environment minister Melissa Price, MPs John Alexander and Scott Buccholtz and federal Liberal president Nick Greiner to change the rules.

"The current rules have produced long periods of stability and long periods of instability, " he said.

Earlier, Mr Turnbull did not deny telling state executive members that Mr Morrison is "just trying to keep his arse in (prime ministerial limousine) C1".

Mr Kelly, a chief critic of the coalition's now-defunct national energy guarantee policy, had been expected to lose preselection in Hughes before Mr Morrison threw his weight behind the conservative backbencher's bid for re-endorsement. "If that threat has been made, that is effectively blackmail", the former he told reporters in Sydney on Monday.
