Foreign Minister Julie Bishop seems to be actively participating in the campaigns for the Australia elections 2016.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is campaigning to retain the head of the state position in 2016 while the Opposition leader is trying to win over the hearts of Australians to replace the former. But Bishop swears that her active participation in the election campaigns is not intended towards prime minister-ship ambitions, according to the News.com.au. She has no immediate plans to become an Aussie PM.

A few incidents in the last few days have shown the strong personality of the Coalition woman and her rising popularity. In fact, she appears to be one of the most influential public figures in recent times. While people are still struggling to identify the real character of their prime minister, Bishop’s continuous media appearances and her personalized approach to people who can really make a difference to the Australia elections 2016 can do wonders for the Turnbull government.

The dedication and devotion of the foreign minister remind everyone of how former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd convinced Australians to vote for his Labor party in 2007. His success in the elections proved that devotion and sincerity make a big difference when it comes to achieving the impossible. Turnbull’s inability to justify his takes on superannuation, the budget of 2016 and the Safe Schools funding are just some issues that are reasons enough to put the Coalition down.

On the other hand, Bishop’s “gotcha” moment, as she admitted on Neil Mitchell’s 3AW on Tuesday morning, could hardly downplay her popularity level. After all, it’s tough to understand what the government actually intends to achieve through his complex superannuation structure. Hats off to Turnbull who claimed the brain size of people on the planet to be incapable of understanding complicated matters. The prime minister forgets that the underdeveloped brains are the one who can score or underscore him as the head of the nation.

Recently, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton came up with a controversial comment where he raised his concern over the Aussie economy by describing refugees as “illiterate and innumerate,” who would take Australian jobs in lieu of Australia’s permission of refugee influx on humanitarian grounds. Where Turnbull refused to comment on the issue, Bishop emerged as a leader to support the national minister, saying his comments came following “self-evident” instances.

The role of Bishop seems to influence Australians to a great extent despite some of her blunders, which in comparison to Turnbull are minor mistakes. The July 2 elections will show how effective Bishop remained firm in terms of her stand and participation in the Australia elections 2016 for Turnbull and the government.
