Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has criticised Labor’s decision to appoint Kristina Keneally to the portfolio. Dutton claims that she is the "least qualified" to be the shadow home affairs minister. Keneally has previously opposed the federal government’s policy of turning back asylum-seeker boats and expressed support for on-shore processing. However, she now says Labor fully supports boat turnbacks and offshore processing. Meanwhile, former shadow treasurer Chris Bowen will step into the health portfolio, while Bill Shorten has been given the National Disability Insurance Scheme portfolio. The new shadow cabinet has equal representation of men and women.
