The new Federal Government is formed the  ministry having a strong female representation.  Under Labor rules, the factions agree on the make-up of the frontbench, and the Prime Minister allocates which portfolios they hold.         Mr Albanese has claimed victory in another seat beyond the 76-seat threshold for majority government.  Counting continues for the remaining seat in doubt: Deakin in Victoria.  While addressing his agenda for the year ahead, Mr Albanese announced the 47th federal parliament will open on July 26th.
