There are questions over whether Australia's Attorney-General is fit and proper for the role, amid rape allegations.

Christian Porter revealed he's the man at the centre of the allegations, after a woman claimed he raped her when he was 17 in 1988.

Police confirm the woman laid a complaint then told police that she didn't want to proceed,  and later died.

Former lawyer for the woman Michael Bradley told Heather du Plessis-Allan the Attorney-General is an incredibly powerful and responsible position.

He says the integrity of that role is paramount and the person has to be above reproach and suspicion.
