Australia Prime Minister Has 'Miracle' Election Win
Monday, 20 May 2019 18:22 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Australia's prime minister went to his Pentecostal church Sunday after nailing a surprise victory Saturday in the country's general election.

Polls had indicated that Scott Morrison and his conservative Liberal-National coalition government were sure to loose. The polls, however, were wrong.

"I have always believed in miracles," Morrison told a cheering crowd Saturday.

U.S. President Donald Trump, whose presidential victory was also a shock to pollsters and the U.S. Democratic party, called Morrison to offer his congratulations.

The White House said "the two leaders reaffirmed the critical importance of the long-standing alliance and friendship between the United States and Australia."
