Scott Morrison has swept to victory in a sensational federal election result that defied the polls and cements the Coalition's power. The Coalition is on track to win government, fending off Labor and Bill Shorten's efforts to take over as prime minister. As it stands, the Coalition is headed to form a minority government at least, but could still reach the 76 seats needed to form a majority government. There is no longer any path to victory for Labor. In a jubilant victory speech at the Liberal Party official election night function at Sydney's Sofitel Wentworth hotel, Mr Morrison acknowledged the surprise win saying, "I have always believed in miracles". The Prime Minister said Mr Shorten had contacted him to concede defeat, and said he thanked the Labor leader for his "kind remarks to me and Jenny".
