New Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Saturday he had spoken with President Donald Trump and been congratulated by the US leader, who got off to a famously rocky start with former premier Malcolm Turnbull.

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

It makes him the fourth consecutive prime minister to be dumped by his or her own party before serving a full three-year term.

"They've got a new fella called Scott Morrison who half of Australia hasn't heard of".

"We will provide the stability and the unity and the direction and the objective that the Australian people expect of us, " Mr Morrison told reporters.

Morrison, one of Turnbull's backers, will be Australia's sixth prime minister in 11 years.

The political instability could damage Australia's standing on the world stage, Shorten warned.

"Both underlined the strength and depth of our alliance and the unbreakable friendship between Australia and the United States", the spokesperson said. 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.

Hawk said some people got better with the help of naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal drug, while others didn't. So far, no deaths have been reported. "We've heard from people on the green that it potentially included PCP".

"It was described as madness by many, and.in so far as there has been chaos this week, it has been created by the wreckers". He has been a longtime advocate for progressive social policies and action on climate change.

The unrest is the latest chapter in a turbulent decade for Australian politics, which has frequently descended into squabbling that has alienated voters.

Aged Care and Indigenous Health Minister Ken Wyatt, whose personal popularity is key to the Government holding its most marginal WA seat of Hasluck, would have reconsidered his position if Mr Dutton became prime minister, because he boycotted the 2008 apology to the Stolen Generation.

"We affirmed the strength of the relationship between the USA and Australia".

The Liberal party is the senior partner in the ruling conservative coalition that will face an election by May 2019. MR Morrison said the rest of his Cabinet would be sworn in next week. "I relish it", he said after rising to the country's highest political role.

Australia uses the navy to turn boats back to Indonesia, or banishes refugees to remote immigration camps on the poor Pacific island nations of Papua New Guinea and Nauru. "There are no greater friends than the United States and Australia!" he wrote on Twitter.

Fast-forward to 2015 and Turnbull got his revenge by dramatically forcing Abbott from office in a Liberal Party coup, claiming the government faced defeat at the next election without change at the top.

A year ago the deeply Christian Morrison attracted more controversy for opposing a bill legalizing same-sex marriage, even though it had strong support from his party.
