>Haley's new book on sale
Former US secretary of state Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John F. Kelly sought to recruit her to work around and subvert President Donald Trump, but she refused, former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley writes in a new book, "With All Due Respect", released Tuesday.
"Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country," Haley wrote. "It was their decisions, not the president's, that were in the best interests of America, they said. The president didn't know what he was doing," Haley wrote.
The former South Carolina governor, widely viewed by Republicans as a top potential presidential candidate in 2024, wrote that she backed most of the foreign policy decisions by Trump that others tried to block or slow down.

>Election boost for Johnson
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson won the most significant boost of the British election campaign to date when Nigel Farage's Brexit Party pulled out of 317 Conservative-held seats in a bid to prevent opponents of Brexit controlling the next parliament.
The move dramatically increases the chances that Johnson will stay prime minister, and then finally deliver on the 2016 referendum result to take Britain out of the European Union.
Farage said Brexit was in peril, so he would focus his party's efforts at unseating opponents of leaving the EU - primarily in seats held by the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats.
Johnson welcomed Farage's move, which rivals said made the Conservatives in effect an ally of Farage's hard-Brexit party.

>Party member education plan
The General Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee has published a work plan for strengthening education and training of Party members. Starting from 2019, a five-year education campaign will be launched to ensure that all CPC members will receive Party training focusing on strengthening their ideals, sense of Party consciousness and competence, according to the plan.
During the campaign, the primary political task is to study and implement Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, it said. The plan also detailed the basic tasks of Party member training, including political theory education, political education and training, education on the Party Constitution, Party rules and discipline, the Party's purpose as well as the traditions of revolution.

>Catastrophic bushfire threat
The government of New South Wales, Australia's most populous state, on Monday declared a state of emergency as the Sydney region braced for unprecedented fire conditions.
More than 350 schools and colleges will be closed on Tuesday in Sydney and surrounding regions.
Since Friday, fires have destroyed nearly 1 million hectares of bush and agricultural land in the north of the state. More than 200 homes have been lost, three people killed, dozens injured, and millions of dollars of infrastructure and farm machinery destroyed.
The state's Rural Fire Service warned that the Sydney region will face "catastrophic" fire conditions on Tuesday. It is the first time the region has been rated at that fire level since new fire danger ratings were introduced in 2009.
