Australian PM Scott Morrison has been removed from power as the country has elected its first Labor government in almost a decade.
Anthony Albanese is set to become the nation’s next Prime Minister.
As one of Australia’s longest-serving politicians, he says it is about time the parliament reflects “modern Australia”, also citing his humble beginnings as a kid in public housing.
He has also earned a reputation as a defender of Australia’s free healthcare system, an advocate for the LGBT community, a republican, and a passionate rugby league fan.
But it still not clear whether it will be a majority leadership or in coalition with independents and minor parties.
Independents have also done well in the election so far, amid public dissatisfaction with the two major parties.
