He argued the national security and economic ministries were his more pressing priority.

"These are the critical portfolios that sit at the central agencies of government."

The prime minister is also not saying who would replace his retiring indigenous affairs minister.

"I'll be making that decision after the election should we be elected," he said.

"That's not what this election is about," the prime minister said.

"I'm not distracted by this issue at all. I'm 100 per cent focused on the issues Australians are focused on for their future.

"I'm pleased that issue has been settled and put to rest, and I'm very pleased Australians can now move on and plan for their future with confidence."

Mr Morrison is expected to blitz several more marginal seats in Victoria and NSW on Wednesday afternoon.
