Peta Credlin takes swipe at critics

PETA Credlin, the chief of staff to former prime minister Tony Abbott, says she has no intention of entering politics, while urging women to take on more leadership roles.

Ms Credlin has spoken out for the first time since Mr Abbott lost the prime ministership to Malcolm Turnbull in last week's Liberal leadership spill.

She told the Women of the Future Awards in Sydney she would "sleep well at night" for her role in elevating Mr Abbott to the top job in 2013, but is looking forward to the next chapter of her life.

"People say to me 'You're really lucky to have the best job in the country', and I was like, 'There's no luck involved, I worked my guts out for six years to go from opposition to government'," she said.

"5:00am in the morning, really late nights, huge pressure, and it's relentless."
