Kieran Gilbert: Barnaby Joyce not going anywhere yet

Deputy Nationals leader Bridget McKenzie said Mr Joyce had the full support of the party.

Multiple reports say National Party MPs are considering approaching Barnaby Joyce about his leadership as the scandal over his personal life continues to plague the government.

When asked if he would be comfortable with Mr Joyce being Acting Prime Minister next week, Mr O'Dowd said: "I would hope to have it resolved today or tomorrow".

Barnaby Joyce is hanging on to his job despite a group of Nationals MPs pushing him to resign after his partner was handed two political jobs.

"There's a lot more stuff that's going on they could be talking about that's more important to the damn country than whacking this out - but this is the way their advisers handle things too", she said.

The An-148 was developed by Ukraine's Antonov company in the early 2000s and manufactured in both Ukraine and Russian Federation . The jet, which was reportedly seven years old, was being flown by an experienced pilot who had 5000 hours of flying time.

Former Nationals leader Warren's Truss also called for a resolution of the matter, saying Mr Joyce had been "diminished" by the long-running affair with the now-pregnant Vikki Campion.

But Ms Bishop, who has plans to be overseas herself next week, said Mr Turnbull had not asked her to be available.

Now, I don't want to upset the scarlet fruit but let me tell you what is coming next from the snowflake media.

Ms Campion, who is expecting a baby with Mr Joyce in April, was transferred to work at a new role in fellow Nationals MP Matthew Cavanan's office in April 2017, after working for Mr Joyce from August 2016.

"The initial search has shown that the editors of the Parliamentary Handbook appeared to be responsible for the error relating to the period [last year]", Mr Joyce's spokesperson said.

Nationals President Larry Anthony, the party's most senior bureaucrat and a former legislator, arrived at Parliament House on Wednesday telling reporters he was helping lawmakers deal with "a very hard time".

The report also adds that the company is working on a new firmware version for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 +. The latest Android version managed to reach some regions including India, USA, Turkey, France and Poland.

Barnaby Joyce is fighting to keep his grip on the National party leadership.

The obvious replacements for Joyce, were he to resign, include veterans affairs minister Michael McCormack and former cabinet minister Darren Chester.

"When she worked in my office, she was not my partner".

Mr Joyce said there was no evidence that he had used taxpayer dollars for trips to conduct a relationship with the staffer.

If both the prime minister and deputy prime minister are unable to take Australia's reigns, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop would ordinarily be next in line. "If circumstances change then of course I would change my plans, but that's not my understanding". The controversy here relates to ministerial code of conduct rules requiring the go-ahead from the Prime Minister's office in the appointment of family members or "partners", with the PM playing very nebulous semantic games about what defines a partner in the service of defending Joyce.
