In the US, all government appointees remain in their jobs only if the new administration wants them. I understand that that vast majority are not wanted by the new administration, as many such jobs are seen as rewards given to those who supported them.

I'm sure many here in Australia would see that as unacceptable, but the Labor habit (which they've done repeatedly) of renewing long term contracts to top jobs with punishing break of contract clauses only months if not weeks before an election is tantamount to an abuse of power and should be stopped.
