Today, Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced he will be challenging Prime Minister Abbott for the Liberal Party leadership.

1. This, of course, probably came as a thrill to former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who spent much of her own time in office fending off Abbott as opposition leader and leadership challenges from her own side.

Gillard was ousted from the top job in June 2013 when Kevin Rudd became Prime Minister of Australia for the second time.
