Australia PM appoints new resources minister in reshuffle

World Bulletin / News Desk

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard appointed former Woodside Petroleum executive Gary Gray to the Resources and Energy portfolio on Monday in a cabinet reshuffle forced by a string of ministerial resignations.

Gillard survived a leadership push by rival Kevin Rudd last Thursday but then lost three cabinet ministers and two junior ministers, including resources minister Martin Ferguson, who quit her frontbench due to their support for Rudd.
