In the general election held in Australia on the 21st, Labor Party leader Albany Gee, who was expected to become the first party in the House of Representatives, swore in front of the federal governor on the 23rd and became prime minister.

The elections are still being counted on the 21st, but local media such as ABC, a public broadcaster, said the Labor Party, led by Albany Gee, was certain to become the first party in the House for the first time in nine years in Australia. The administration was changed and the Labor Party administration was inaugurated.

Mr. Albany Gee, who became Prime Minister, will then head to Japan to attend the summit meeting of the four-country framework "Quad" in Tokyo on the 24th.
