Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced his new ministry.

It is the second cabinet reshuffle to take place since Turnbull stepped into his prime ministerial role after ousting Tony Abbott in September.

But the Turnbull government has faced the departure of five ministers since December including deputy prime minister Warren Truss, minister for cities and the built environment Jamie Briggs, trade minister Andrew Robb, human services minister Stuart Robert and today, special minister of state Mal Brough.

The new lineup includes promotions for Steven Ciobo and Darren Chester as well as Fiona Nash who will take on regional development and regional communications in addition to her existing rural health portfolio.

In a press conference following the reshuffle, Turnbull described the revamped ministry as a “dynamic team which combines youth, new talent, experience, continuity and a real sense of innovation and enterprise”.

He welcomed the turnover saying that “there comes a time when you need to transition from older leadership to younger leadership so that new people can come up”.
