“I am pleased that people from across the party have agreed to serve in my cabinet and we are going to be getting on with the job,” she said in a pooled television clip.

“I said during the election campaign if re-elected I would serve a full term ... What I am doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job. I think that’s what’s important. I think that’s what the public would expect, they want to see government providing that certainty and stability.”
