New Australian PM pledges 'generational change' to heal ruling party(This version of Aug. 24 story corrects spelling of party member’s name to Entsch, paragraph 10) By Colin Packham CANBERRA (Reuters) – New Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison promised generational change in the warring Liberal party on Friday, seeking to end an internecine battle that has scarred the conservative government ahead of an election due by May 2019.
