Prime Minister Scott Morrison has now been in the top job for longer than anyone since Malcolm Turnbull left the role in August. It makes Morrison the second longest serving Prime Minister of all time this year.
Mr Morrison put his longevity down to hard work, groovy hats and a total lack of a viable alternative.
Observers say Mr Morrison could remain in the role for up to another five months, making him the fifth longest serving Prime Minister this decade.
