Aussie PM defends job amid reports of govt rift

Reports claim rifts in government ranks over Australian PM Julia Gillard`s leadership.



Canberra: Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has defended her job after newspapers reported rifts in government ranks over her leadership and a scuttled policy to send hundreds of asylum seekers to Malaysia.

Gillard told Australian Broadcasting Corp radio on Friday that none of her government colleagues had raised with her frustration with her leadership.

She says she is the best person for the job and will continue doing it.

The government is reeling from a High Court ruling on Wednesday that thwarted its plan to send 800 asylum seekers to Malaysia in a policy to deter others from journeying to Australia by boat.

Anonymous government sources told newspapers she could soon be overthrown as her party`s leader in an internal government coup.
