Former prime minister Scott Morrison says a censure motion moved against him in parliament amounts to “political intimidation” by the Albanese government.
Morrison defiant on secret appointments
A defiant Scott Morrison has again defended his decision to take on additional ministerial portfolios in secret while he was prime minister, describing the powers as a “dormant redundancy”.
A rare censure motion was moved in the House of Representatives on Wednesday against Mr Morrison to note its disapproval of his actions.
It is the first time the House has taken such action against a former prime minister.
Mr Morrison said the motion amounted to “political intimidation” by the Albanese government.
