A 17 year-old boy who started an internship at the Liberal Party last November has worked his way up to a cabinet position, it has been confirmed.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the appointment today, saying it was part of his fresh team for the election.
“He was the best candidate for the job. Actually, he was the only candidate for the job,” Morrison told journalists, during a 14-minute press conference during which eight further Liberal MPs resigned.
“He will make a great junior minister,” Morrison said before excusing himself to take a phone call from a colleague.
“As I was saying, he will make a great senior minister”.
The intern later announced that he would be resigning at the upcoming election. He has been offered a diplomatic posting in Europe.
