The conservatives in the Liberal Party-led coalition became a rare minority government after they dumped Malcolm Turnbull as prime minister for Morrison, the current prime minister, in an internal power struggle last August.

Morrison's Liberal-National coalition defied exit polls forecast to be re-elected on Saturday, in what he called "a political miracle", Al Jazeera reported.

After a long and bitter election campaign, Morrison said Australians have had enough of politics.

Australia's conservative coalition is poised to secure an outright majority following a shock election victory, allowing Prime Minister Scott Morrison to carry forward his legislative agenda, Reuters reports.

Opinion polls in Australia had all pointed to a Labor victory. Morrison had become Australia's sixth prime minister in only eight years.

Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were among the first world leaders to congratulate Morrison. Four such changes had been brought about by lawmakers voting to dump their party's leader, two each from the coalition and the center-left Labor Party. As analysts tried to make sense of the outcome, several factors have been highlighted.

Commentators have pointed to a "presidential-style" campaign from Australia's prime minister and compared it to the 2016 United States election. One telling result came on Monday, when high-profile independent lawmaker Dr. Kerryn Phelps conceded defeat to the Liberal Party in the Sydney electorate of Wentworth _ the seat vacated by Turnbull on his resignation from Parliament previous year.

Labor campaigned on a platform of reducing inequality through tax reform, higher wages and better public infrastructure but Shorten, a former union leader, was never seen as a popular leader.

Independent MP Kerryn Phelps conceded defeat in the NSW seat of Wentworth on Monday, losing to the Liberals' Dave Sharma after only six months in parliament.

Shorten made the announcement to supporters of his opposition Labor Party late Saturday night in Melbourne.
