Treasurer Scott Morrison to become Australia's next prime minister

He actually is talking about conservative, new coal-fired power stations, immigration, and he's actually speaking the language a lot of Australians want to be heard from the leader of this nation.

Mr Turnbull leapt to his defence in the face of strong public backlash.

His speech was echoed on social media, where Australians vented their frustration at the latest antics.

"To imagine that a government would be rocked by this sort of disloyalty and deliberate insurgency".

"I don't think there's much evidence to suggest that conclusion is not correct".

The leadership now looms as a battle between Mr Dutton and Treasurer Scott Morrison, who could run if Mr Turnbull steps aside. He was the first Immigration Minister in the Abbott government, meaning he was the architect of the monstrous immigration policy that has seen children locked up, deaths, rampant self-harm, and serious mental health issues among vulnerable refugees.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang congratulated Morrison on his new role and said Beijing would work with him to develop China-Australia ties "along the right track".

"They have no climate policy, no energy policy and no economic policy and the paralysis is likely to continue".

"It's all the usual nonsense and the PM knows exactly where I stand, the Australian people always know where I stand". "It is not a secret".

Morrison said he meant to bring the Liberal Party back together after they were "bruised and battered" by the events of the week, events that previous prime minister Malcolm Turnbull described in his final address as "madness".

Before politics, he made a splash as managing director of Tourism Australia in 2006, when he approved a 180 million Australian dollar ($130 million) advertising campaign to attract visitors Down Under with a bikini-clad model on an Aussie beach who asked: "So where the bloody hell are you?". "There has been no explanation from either the outgoing or incoming prime minister".

The Liberal Party's bruising leadership contest that led to Mr. Morrison's elevation was the second in the span of a week.

"In relation to the deputy's position, this was won in an overwhelming sense.by Josh Frydenberg".

Former home affairs minister Peter Dutton, an ex-police officer and right-winger, had been the stalking horse seeking to unseat Turnbull after a party backlash against his more moderate approach to politics.

Tony Abbott also chimed in, telling reporters "We've lost a prime minister but there is still a government to save".

Bishop was eliminated on the first vote, setting up a showdown between Morrison and Dutton, which Morrison won 45 votes to 40, making him the new Liberal leader.

Michaelia Cash, Mathias Cormann and Mitch Fifield have announced they won't back Malcolm Turnbull. Today he called on the Liberals to do the same in the name of stability for the country.

The bare minimum majority of 43 signatures were provided shortly before the meeting started.

"I think it's a turning point and I think it's a healing point for the Liberal Party", he was quoted by the ABC as saying.

Turnbull has so far only accepted two resignations - Dutton and International Development Minister Concetta Fierravanti-Wells - and insisted on Wednesday the others had since "given me unequivocal assurances of continuing loyalty and support".

"When the party room meeting is called, I will invite a spill motion to be moved".

He is expected to be sworn in by Governor-General Peter Cosgrove after Mr Turnbull officially resigns.
