New federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott is expected to announce a new frontbench early next week.
More than a dozen Liberals quit their portfolio responsibilities last week amid growing turmoil within the party.
Two frontbenchers, Chris Pearce and Margaret May, have announced they will not recontest the next election, while Malcolm Turnbull will move to the backbench while he decides his political future.
Mr Abbott says he will put together a strong team.
