Attorney-General George Brandis is on the verge of a long-anticipated exit from federal politics, with the Turnbull government expected to reshuffle its ministry today. It is widely reported that Brandis will vacate his position in the Senate to take over the role of High Commissioner in London, currently held by Alexander Downer. It is also reported that Senator Arthur Sinodinos will not return to cabinet after stepping aside due to poor health.
