New Australian PM Anthony Albanese pledges to 'unite country'.

Australia's Labor Party leader Anthony Albanese has said he wants to unite the country after leading the opposition to power for the first time since 2007.

He made his comments after Scott Morrison conceded defeat in the election, ending almost a decade of conservative rule and paving the way for a government more focused on issues such as social equality and climate change.

Labor currently remains just shy of the 76 seats needed to form a government and so may have to rely on the support of smaller independent parties, including the Greens.
