Sunrise host David Koch focused on Scott Morrison and his new cabinet, after a record number of seven women were appointed in the ministry.
The television host weighed on the progressive new choice of the Coalition after the party was criticized for its lack of female representation by the election campaign.
& # 39; Seven women said on Wednesday that they were sworn in senior roles, did the coalition solve its women's problem, you think? & # 39; Koch asked Simon Birmingham, the trade minister, on Monday.
Senator Birmingham ignored Koch's subtle excavation and said the appointments, including the first Aboriginal Indigenous Affairs Minister of Australia, a & # 39; historical moment & # 39; is in politics.
& # 39; It's a great moment … to see such a strong line-up of very capable women who have their own merits, & # 39; he continued.
& # 39; We want to ensure that we continue to drive and encourage representation that reflects Australia's diversity, and this attitude does that. & # 39;

Mr. Morrison's government struggled to change her & # 39; anti-woman & # 39; reputation after reports of sexism and bullying within the party that emerged last year.
The accusations led to the dramatic departure of former liberal MP Julia Banks, who switched to an independent claim of & # 39; gender bias & # 39; within the government.
The & # 39; women's problem & # 39; of the coalition served as a target for Labor, which consistently emphasized the alleged poor treatment of women and the lack of female leadership throughout the campaign.
New additions to the ministry include Victorian Liberal Senator Jane Hume, Farrer MP Sussan Ley, Forrest MP Nola Marino and South Australia Senator Anne Ruston.
Marise Payne remains the minister of Foreign Affairs and has been given additional responsibilities as minister for women.
After the announcement, Mrs. Hume said that the women were appointed as senior citizen roles based on their talent and ability – not as a symbolic gesture.
& # 39; The caliber of women in Scott Morrison's cabinet defies aesthetics & # 39 ;, Mrs. Hume said The Australian.
& # 39; Make no mistake. I'm not here for my skirt. I am here for my experience and the contribution I can make to a sector that is crucial to the Australian economy.

The prime minister left his own mark on the ministry and cabinet after making minimal changes when he first took over leadership in August last year.
& # 39; An important point of interest for all my ministers and their departments will be improving government performance, & # 39; said Mr. Morrison on Sunday.
& # 39; This includes congestion in regulatory and bureaucratic blockades, better use of technology and better integration of service delivery in portfolios.
& # 39; The goal is to make it easier to deal with and access the government services that Australians rely on. & # 39;
But his appointment of the most important ally Stuart Robert to cabinet as Minister of the Public Service Department received strong criticism from Labor.
& # 39; The idea that Stuart Robert is getting the cabinet's responsibility for something says everything about the exodus of talent that has occurred & # 39 ;, the helpful employment defender Richard Marles told reporters.
Robert was forced to stop the ministry in 2016 after it was announced that he had misrepresented a private trip to China to support a liberal party donor as an official state-owned company.
In 2017, it was announced that his parents did not know that they were the director of Mr Robert's IT company, which had won millions of dollars in government work.
In 2018, Robert had to pay back nearly $ 38,000 to taxpayers after he emerged charging nearly $ 2000 a month for his internet bill.
