Tony Abbott again approved for Warringah

Former prime minister Tony Abbott has again been preselected for the seat of Warringah.

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been endorsed as the Liberal candidate for the Warringah seat on the beaches of North Sydney after an overnight branch meeting.

Abbott remained unopposed and was elected despite the grunts of a vocal minority of members.

The result comes three years after the 2015 leadership spill when Malcolm Turnbull ousted Abbott as prime minister.
