Australian PM Scott Morrison wins federal elections

@Reuters
In Australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison's Liberal-National Coalition won the federal elections.

Prime Minister Morrison has declared victory after his coalition defied opinion polls and secured a surprise win over the opposition Labor Party.

Opposition Labor Party leader Bill Shorten has announced that he is resigning after accepting defeat.

The final result of the elections is yet to be announced, however, with more than 70 percent of votes counted the Coalition is ahead in 74 seats in its quest for a 76-seat majority, with Labor on just 66 seats.

The polling held yesterday for all 151 seats in the House of Representatives. Australia has mandatory voting for people aged 18 and over.
