"The successful candidate was Scott Morrison", said Liberal Party whip Nola Marino.

Mr Morrison has been dubbed the "accidental prime minister" because he had no plans to nominate until Thursday when Mr Turnbull declared he would not recontest his job. He is widely seen as one of instigators in this week's latest sorry chapter in Australian politics.
