Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry has congratulated the Australian Labour Party and its leader Anthony Albanese for their victory in the Australian elections.
Chaudhry says it is a well deserved victory with Albanese campaigning largely on a social reform package that targeted the elderly and needy Australian families.
He says it will be interesting to have a Labour government in office in Australia after almost a decade in the opposition.
Albanese claimed victory in an extraordinary federal election. He says his team will work every day to bring Australians together, saying he will lead a government "worthy of the people of Australia".
Meanwhile, Scott Morrison has revealed he will step down as the head of the Liberal Party.
