Key figures of the Malcolm Turnbull government in the Senate have announced their full support to the winning side.

Finance Minsiter Mathias Cormann, Communications Minister Mitch Fifield and Minister of Employment Michaelia Cash have confirmed their “unreserved support” for the Liberal Party leader who is going to get support from most party members.

Mathias Cormann says Malcolm Turnbull is a great Prime Minister but is now on the losing team.

“I have worked, my colleagues have worked, Peter Dutton had worked, really hard to help Turnbull win,” Cormann says.

“I just want to win,” Michaelia Cash said from behind a whiteboard.
