ALAN GRIFFIN MP Shadow Special Minister of State Federal Member for Bruce CONFUSION REIGNS OVER GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP When asked on Adelaide Radio today whether Peter Costello would become Prime Minister if John Howard lost his seat, the Minister for Ageing, Christopher Pyne, said "I assume [it] would be that the National Party Leader would be the Prime Minister" This just highlights the confusion within the Coalition about who will actually be leading the country under a Coalition Government when Howard leaves. Will it be Costello, Vaile, Abbott or Turnbull? The Australian Public deserve to know who they are electing to be the Prime Minister of our country. Instead the only guarantee is that if the Coalition wins Government there will be nothing but chaos in the Government Party Room as they fight over the leadership. 13 August Media Contact: Rodney Hilton Adviser for Alan Griffin MP Tel: 02 6277 4374 Mob: 0403 831179 Fax: 02 6277 4065
