Australia's PM-elect Tony Abbott has said his top priorities are to abolish a tax on carbon emissions and to stop asylum-seekers arriving by boat.
His government would "swiftly implement Operation Soverign Borders" aimed at "intercepting vessels and turning them around", Mr. Abbott told the Herald Sun.
Outgoing PM Kevin Rudd has said he will not stand again in for Labor leadership.
The Australian Election Commission confirmed on its website that the Liberal-National coalition had won 88 seats in the House of Representatives and Labor 57...

It looks like its happening with an authentic program of border security for a country that's surrounded by water.
The left leaning Labor Party was first to advocate a program of security but the new PM says he will act quickly to implement it.
GREAT LEADER so far!!
The man is following the tradition set for Australia under his predecessor — John Howard, another great Australian leader who led the country for close to 10 years.
Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard are brief detours. Now, Australia has returned to her common sense roots.
Not sure if I can say the same for the once great USA next year or two years after that...
Australia just keep looking better and better...
Any way we could bribe him to run for POTUS in the next election cycle?
He’s probably more qualified than Obama...
As expected, that was one bitter editorial by the BBC
By a parsec at least!
The comments were even more bitter!
What a joyous moment, to hear the lamantations of their wymon!
Agreed. I was thinking ‘natural born’. LOL
He is British by birth.
So is Obama.
Waddya mean probably. Your mailman is more qualified than obammy.
What’s really interesting is the maternity subsidy his party is implementing.
Not only is he planning on keeping foreigners OUT, he’s proactively trying to increase the Australian birth rate.
Lots of people here oppose such subsidies, for good reasons. But repairing decades old damage done by abortion and promotion of homosexuality and other population control tactics merits extraordinary measures. It’s currently working in Russia, a nation that was headed to oblivion after the 70 year ‘Communist mistake’ as they refer to it now.
But.....but.....I thought Putin was a Communist, or at least that's what plenty of FReepers tell me.
Yeah. What a joke.
Potty poot is a Russian tribal boss, what westerners call a gangster.
But that’s how Russia works. They’re still a tribe, 1000 years later.
But he’s at least a clan leader interested in seeing his tribe prosper, if only to increase his own net worth.
I’ve spent enought time there now to understand them, and this is how I see it. It’s not the world I want to live in, but from their perspective, it’s better than what they had. A prosperous feudal state is more acceptable than a run down, desperate, murderous collectivist state.
At least the beautiful Russian women are having families again. Maybe in another generation they can get past the gangsta-government gig.
It’s going to take several generations at least for Russia to undo all the damage the Bolsheviks did. At least Putin gives them some stability in the meantime.
You paraphrased it better then I did. I tend to be verbose.
There are many interesting things in Abbott’s background including his having been a priest trainee in his youth.
Moral values do seem to exist in his psyche that are non-existent in many other political leaders.
His detractors have used it against him over the years.
As PM Abbott will face many moral challenges in the times we live.
