Australia's ruling coalition was widely expected to be defeated in Saturday's election after long trailing in opinion polls. But somehow, after just nine months as prime minister, Scott Morrison hailed a "miracle" victory. reports citing BBC.

In doing so, he defied a perception in Australian politics that leadership turmoil can only spell electoral doom.

Since the brutal ouster of Malcolm Turnbull last August, Mr Morrison has set about a disciplined strategy.

Some colleagues were considered toxic to the campaign trail, so Mr Morrison made this election about him, and his ability to be the trustworthy, daggy-dad Australia needed.

In the end it was very close but the voters decided, on balance, that Mr Morrison deserved the "fair go" he craved.
