Anthony Albanese is no stranger to India

In the elections held in Australia, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has been elected. According to Australian High Commissioner to India Barry O’Farrell, Anthony is no stranger to India. Taking to Twitter today, the High Commissioner said that the Labor Party leader had traveled to New Delhi as a backpacker in 1991 and led a parliamentary delegation in 2018. During the campaign he committed to deepen India-Australia economic, strategic and people-to-people. Australia’s Conservative Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Saturday conceded electoral defeat in national elections.

Tonight I spoke to the Leader of the Opposition and incoming Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, and I congratulated him on his election victory, Marison told his supporters. He also said that he would stand as leader of the Liberal Party.

He was quoted as saying by CNN that I have always believed in Australians and their decision and I have always been ready to accept their decision. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation predicted on Saturday night that the Labor Party would form a government for the first time since 2013, with Anthony Albanese as the country’s 31st prime minister.

Anthony Albanese thanks people for voting for him. He tweeted that thanks Australia. Tonight the Australians have voted for change. The election result marks the end of the coalition’s nearly nine-year hold on power and Morrison’s term as prime minister. Marison became prime minister in 2018.
