& # 39; They are both extremely intelligent people. Malcolm is one of the smartest people I know. They can both be extremely charming, & Mrs. Bishop said as reported by The Australian.

The similarities between Mr. Turnbull and Mr. Rudd do not end with their shared charm.
Both former prime ministers were backed for the best work by former colleagues they trusted.
Vice Prime Minister Julia Gillard subsequently successfully challenged Prime Minister Rudd to lead the PvdA in 2010.
& # 39; Kevin was knocked down by his own people, who resented that he did not seem interested in the contribution they were supposed to make, & # 39 ;, said Bishop about Kevin Rudd's knifing.

Mr Turnbull was challenged last year by Interior Minister Peter Dutton when a conflict between the moderate and conservative groups of the liberal party came to the fore.
Mr. Dutton was unsuccessful in his leadership problem and Scott Morrison, then treasurer, emerged as a compromise candidate and became Australia's new prime minister.
Both the Liberal and the Labor parties have now established rules to make it harder to challenge the party's leader.
