Scott Morrison is PM, Turnbull quits
Scott Morrison is now the Prime Minister of Australia and Malcolm Turnbull has quit the parliament.
A week of what some have described as Australian politics at its worst, has come to a head at a Liberal Party room meeting in Canberra.
A required 43 signatories to a petition calling for the meeting, and a second spill of positions within a week, was handed to Mr Turnbull late this morning.
Mr Turnbull interpreted the petition as a vote of no confidence in his leadership and didn't stand as a candidate at the meeting. That left a contest between Peter Dutton and Scott Morrison after Julie Bishop was eliminated in the first round.
