Australian PM Abbott faces fight as rival launches challenge
By Matt Siegel CANBERRA (Reuters) - Conservative Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott faced a challenge to his leadership when his popular communications minister launched a bid for the top office on Monday after months of speculation and poor showings in opinion polls. Malcolm Turnbull, a multi-millionaire former tech entrepreneur, said he would seek the leadership of the Liberal Party after being urged "by many people over a long period of time" to run amid criticism of Abbott's performance. "Ultimately, the Prime Minister has not been capable of providing the economic leadership our nation needs," Turnbull told reporters at parliament house in Canberra.
