Scott Morrison is new Australian Prime Minister

Morrison, the current treasurer, won an internal ballot 45-40 over former Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton.

Turnbull did not stand in the leadership contest. He had agreed to hold the ballot after a majority of party MPs signed a letter calling for it to take place.

Turnbull had been under pressure from poor polling, a looming election, and a revolt by conservative MPs.
