Malcolm Fraser
 


 

Age: 84



Summary: former prime minister of Australia from 1975 to 1983 who catapulted to power by a constitutional crisis that left the nation bitterly divded and became unelected leader of an unsuspecting nation in 1975 when then-governor General John Kerr took the unprecedented step of dismissing the chaotic reformist government of prime minister Gough Whitlam, but whose conservative coalition won a clear victory over Whitlam's center-left Labor Party (Fraser later won another two three-year terms) a month after taking power as a caretaker government.
