Scott Morrison's own Liberal Party disapproves of his choice of Wentworth's preselection Katherine O & # 039; Regan

The three-week anniversary of Scott Morrison becoming prime minister has been shocking with the disasters of social networks and his own Liberal Party despises him.

Morrison's preferred candidate to run for a crucial partial election received less than 10 percent of the preselected votes and to make matters worse, he forgot the name of the victor, after having to eliminate a rude video of rap.

The prime minister had wanted a woman to run for Wentworth at the Wentworth headquarters in the eastern suburbs of her predecessor, Malcolm Turnbull, and had backed Katherine O & # 39; Regan as her choice for the midterm elections on October 20. .

The preferred candidate of Mr. Morrison, Mrs. O & # 39; Regan, a former deputy mayor of Woollahra, received only 19 votes out of 201 in the first round and was in fifth place among the eight candidates, despite being anointed as favorite.

The other women in the preselection race Mary-Lou Jarvis, another councilwoman from Woollahra, and rheumatologist Maxine Szramka also had a poor performance against the male contenders.

In another blow to Mr. Morrison's authority, three weeks after becoming prime minister, Mr. Turnbull's preferred candidate, Dave Sharma, prevailed, winning 119 votes after six rounds and seven hours of voting.

To make matters worse, Mr. Morrison misinterpreted his name as David on Twitter, even though the winner, who is of Indian heritage, is Devanand.

"Big congratulations to David Sharma, our new liberal candidate for Wentworth," he tweeted before erasing the message from social media.

Sharma, a former ambassador to Israel who lives outside the Wentworth electorate on the north coast of Sydney, prevailed with the support of the moderate faction, from which O & # 39; Regan also comes.

He remained in the race, despite pressures for the Liberal Party to shortlist a woman, after speaking with former Prime Ministers John Howard and Turnbull, who allegedly called him from New York urging him to continue.

Sharma beat seven other candidates on Thursday night, competing for the blue ribbon electorate, which Turnbull won with a 17.7 percent margin in 2016.

He faced stiff competition from Peter King, the former liberal Wentworth member that Mr. Turnbull overthrew in a 2004 preselection challenge.

The endorsed candidate will now face a tough electoral battle on October 20, and the first polls indicate a great swing against the Liberals, who have never lost Wentworth since its inception in 1901.

The electorate includes Australia's most expensive suburbs, Point Piper and Vaucluse, along with the world-famous Bondi Beach.

A job loss to the Labor Party, or a possible high-profile independent such as the former president of the Australian Medical Association, Kerryn Phelps, would deprive Morrison's government of its one-seat majority.

Prior to the preselection vote in the Eastern Suburbs of the Rugby Union Club in Rose Bay, Miss O 'Regan was originally inclined to triumph after leader Andrew Bragg withdrew from the contest under increasing pressure from Canberra for a woman to be chosen.

He had resigned the race on Monday after having commissioned a poll that showed that a woman was more likely to win the election by choice.

The liberal preselection for Wentworth began at 5 p.m. at the Easts Rugby Club in Woollahra, and Sharma's candidacy was announced after 1.30 a.m.

Hours before the vote, Morrison had to eliminate a gross 2006 rap video of Fatman Scoop that featured "Who is fucking tonight? Who's fucking tonight?

He had posted on Twitter, complete with a possible modification for copyright infringement on images of his Liberal and National colleagues in the House of Representatives.

"The full lyrics of the song used in my previous QT video today just was not right," he tweeted.

& # 39; When I found out, I asked the team to take it down. Apologies

Prior to the prescreening decision, Malcolm Turnbull had been accused of trying to destroy the party that dismissed him as leader.

Conservative commentator Andrew Bolt attacked the former leader of the Liberal Party after he urged his successor, Scott Morrison, through Twitter to refer Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dutton to the High Court about his parliamentary eligibility.

"He's trying desperately to burn the game," Bolt told Sky News on Thursday night.

"What I have done to Scott Morrison and other colleagues is that, given the uncertainty about the eligibility of Peter Dutton, recognized by the Attorney General, he should be referred to the High Court, as was Barnaby, to clarify the matter," Mr. Turnbull tweeted on Wednesday night.

Mr. Morrison returned the blow to his bitter predecessor on Thursday morning.

"Someone told me once in this work, all contributions should be received with gratitude, they are," he told reporters in Queanbeyan, just outside of Canberra.

"But as prime minister, I will obviously make the decisions in relation to our government in what I think is of national interest and based on the latest and most timely information that I have at my disposal.

"Obviously I have a lot of respect for the former prime minister, but now, as prime minister, I will make the decisions that I think are the best for the nation."
