In a rare move, parliament is expected to formally condemn his behaviour.
Cabinet will today discuss a push by Labor backbench MPs to formally sanction Morrison for being secretly sworn in to run additional portfolios.
It comes after the release of the inquiry’s report last Friday by former High Court judge Virginia Bell into the saga.
The report described Morrison’s actions as “troubling”, “unnecessary” and “difficult to reconcile”.
The last time an MP was formally censured in federal parliament was in 2018.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese yesterday said Morrison, who remains a Coalition backbench MP, should issue a public apology.
“What I’m interested in is the relationship or lack thereof between Scott Morrison and the Australian people.
“The Australian population deserves and our democracy requires an apology for this.
“I didn’t see any contrition in Scott Morrison’s statement last Friday, and I find that just extraordinary, that anyone can read the Bell Inquiry and not be embarrassed if you’re the subject of it.”
The Bell inquiry concluded it was “unnecessary” for Morrison to appoint himself as the secret minister for finance and health.
Morrison defended his actions in a statement on Facebook, saying there were made to “best advance and protect Australia’s national interests and the welfare of the Australian people”.
He also noted the inquiry found he had not acted illegally.
