The Conservative coalition lost the parliamentary elections held today in Australia, according to forecasts published by the media after counting about half of the votes. Outgoing Prime Minister Scott Morrison acknowledged his defeat.

The Labor Party under Anthony Albanese appears to be well on its way to forming a government, according to ABC television, but may be called upon to form a minority government as it has not yet secured enough seats in the House of Representatives.

According to initial estimates, both the Conservative Alliance and the Labor Party are losing ground to smaller parties such as the Greens and some independents fighting climate change.

According to ABC, none of the major parties appears to have secured the minimum required number of 76 seats to have a majority in the 151-seat parliament, but Labor appears to be winning more than 70 seats.
