Malcom Turnbull has been elected as the leader of the Australian Liberal party ousting Prime Minister Tony Abbot.

Abbott had earlier been asked to step down following mounting speculation about his position and concerns about the performance of his conservative coalition government.

Malcolm Turnbull is now set to become Australia’s 29th prime minister after winning a ballot for the leadership of the Liberal party 54 votes to 44. The ballot was held at the Parliament House in Canberra.

A second ballot was held to elect the party’s deputy leader and Julie Bishop convincingly defeated Kevin Andrews 70 votes to 3o to claim the deputy leader position.
