Turnbull sworn in as new Australian prime minister

Australia has a new prime minister after Malcolm Turnbull attended a swearing in ceremony at Government House in Canberra.

Turnbull came to power after ousting former prime minister Tony Abbott in a leadership challenge.

The new prime minister had questioned the credentials of the party leader in February.

Abbott then requested six-
months to turn the fortunes of the Liberal Party around.

The time elapsed and Turnbull struck.

The leader says the government will serve a full term and expects the next general election to take place in mid-2016.
