Scott Morrison to step in for Malcolm Turnbull

Scott Morrison to step in for Malcolm Turnbull”

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has congratulated Australia's next prime minister on his new job.

The Treasurer will be Australia's 30th prime minister after defeating Peter Dutton in a ballot to replace Malcolm Turnbull, who called a spill of the Liberal Party's leadership positions in a meeting in Canberra this afternoon.

"This is our most urgent and pressing need right now", Morrison said.

"I'll be leaving the Parliament in - not - not before too long". It could encourage the next Prime Minister Scott Morrison to soon call general elections.

This sparked a series of tweets, now shared and liked thousands of times, and made him a topic of discussion in Australian politics - with many Twitter users imploring him to come over and take over the prime minister's office himself.

He said he would not stand as a candidate, and would resign both as Prime Minister and as a Member of Parliament.

Morrison is the fourth prime minister in five years, a period of political instability that Australia has not experienced since the early 1900s. "I'm sorry. You deserve better than numerous things our Federal Parliament has served up to you for the past 10 years", wrote Nationals MP Darren Chester, whose party is in a coalition with the Liberals.

"It has been such a privilege to be the leader of this great nation", Turnbull said.

Will convene a party room meeting once he receives a letter with a majority of MP signatures requesting one. She was rejected on the first round of voting.

Morrison, an ally of deposed leader Malcolm Turnbull, won an internal party ballot 45-40.

"I think it has been a challenging time to be Prime Minister but I'm very proud of our record", Turnbull told reporters in Canberra on Friday.

Other favorites include Treasurer Scott Morrison and the only declared challenger Peter Dutton, a former cabinet minister.

Julia Gillard, a former Labor prime minister who was herself unceremoniously unseated in a party coup, said the trend was evident globally as hardliners wrestle to move centre-right parties further to the right. A complication had been finding 43 lawmakers to sign a petition demanding a change of leader.

He bought a A$500,000 (US$366,000) investment in internet provider Ozemail before many people had their first email account and then cashed out for A$57 million shortly before the tech crash.

'Well, in the end our party room has decided that they want a new generation of leaders. Given that the government has a one-seat majority, his political retirement would trigger a special election in his Sydney district that could imperil the government.

It was Dutton's backers who forced Turnbull to hold the leadership vote on Friday.

Morrison now has a narrow window to unite a rattled government against the main opposition Labor party, which holds a growing lead in opinion polls even though Federal Labor leader Bill Shorten isn't personally popular.
