Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has held crisis talks with his deputy Barnaby Joyce to heal a unsafe rift that is threatening the ruling coalition's one-seat majority.
The pair met at the Commonwealth Parliament Offices in Sydney for over an hour on Saturday, where the two leaders discussed their public spat regarding Mr Joyce's affair with a former staffer.

While most of the 60 Minutes story was filmed well before the Joyce scandal broke, Mr Turnbull submitted to a further interview on Friday, one day after he publicly shamed the Nationals leader and announced a ban on sex between government ministers and their staff. Both agreed to move forward in the national interest, a government source told AAP.

"Saying you're speaking for 25 million people is a bit presumptuous, but I certainly felt that the values I expressed and the action I took, would have the overwhelming endorsement of Australians".
Nationals President Larry Anthony, the party's most senior bureaucrat and a former legislator, said the meeting resolved to give Joyce more time to ride out his controversies.
"He is having a week off and then we'll have our party room meeting Monday after next and we will see", she said.
Mr Joyce also doubled down on questions over the possible misuse of taxpayer funds in the saga.
The latest Newspoll finds 65% of a sample of 1,632 voters thinks Joyce should resign the leadership of the Nationals, while a third of the sample thinks he should quit parliament.
