Why Turnbull opted for such a long campaign

Andrew Elder wrties in IndependentAustralia (19.5.16): ‘The reason why Malcolm Turnbull opted for such a long campaign is because he has to build his campaign team from scratch. ‘The team that took the Liberal Party from defeat in 2007 through coming close to winning in 2010 and then regaining office in 2013 has largely remained loyal to Abbott. Most of those who weren’t personally loyal to Abbott are just old-school campaign junkies who confuse action with progress, people who get rewarded with staffer jobs but who suck at actual slow-and-steady government.’
