Australia faces an uncertain few days after Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's government failed to get an outright majority in the parliamentary elections.
The Turnbull-led coalition is leading in 74 seats, two short for a majority, while Labour Party, led by opposition leader Bill Shorten, is leading in 66 seats.
One went to the Greens, four to other independent candidates. Five seats are undetermined. The fight is for control of the majority of 150 seats in Australia's lower house of the parliament.
A hung parliament was possible, Attorney General George Brandis said, but his colleague Treasurer Scott Morrisson said that the Liberal Party "will be able to form a majority government."
