Scott Morrison is an Australian politician serving as the 30th and current Prime Minister of Australia and leader of the Liberal Party of Australia since 24 August 2018. Working hard to maintain an image as a determinedly average person, his leadership has enthusiastically embraced the US "pivot to Asia", with an increased military and propaganda stance against China, which has led to deteriorating economic ties.

Interestingly, he was the minister who introduced the hardline "No Jab, No Pay" vaccine policy as Minister for Social services in 2015, then had moved up Prime Minister as the COVID-19 psychological operation started few years later.

Background

Scott Morrison was born in Sydney and studied economic geography at the University of New South Wales.

He worked as director of the New Zealand Office of Tourism and Sport from 1998 to 2000 and was managing director of Tourism Australia from 2004 to 2006. Morrison was state director of the New South Wales Liberal Party from 2000 to 2004 and was first elected to the House of Representatives at the 2007 federal election. He was appointed to the opposition frontbench after the 2010 election.

Ministerial Career

Following the Coalition's victory at the 2013 election, Morrison was appointed Minister for Immigration and Border Protection in the Abbott Government.[1] In that capacity he was responsible for implementing Operation Sovereign Borders, one of the Coalition's flagship policies.

In August 2018, Peter Dutton challenged Turnbull for the leadership of the Liberal Party, due to dissatisfaction from the party's conservative wing. Turnbull defeated Dutton in a leadership ballot, but tensions continued to mount and the party voted in favour of holding a second ballot; Turnbull chose not to be a candidate. In the second vote, Morrison emerged as a compromise candidate, defeating Dutton and Julie Bishop to become leader of the Liberal Party and prime minister.[2]

Minister for Social services

In a cabinet reshuffle in late December 2014, Morrison was appointed the Minister for Social Services and ceased to be Minister for Immigration and Border Protection.In April 2015, he announced the introduction of the "No Jab, No Pay" policy, which withholds family and childcare benefits from parents who do not vaccinate their children.[3]

Treasury

He was promoted to Treasurer in September 2015, when Malcolm Turnbull replaced Tony Abbott as prime minister.[4]

Prime Minister

The prime ministership of Scott Morrison commenced on 24 August 2018.
