The Independent published this video item, entitled “Australia: Anthony Albanese sworn in as prime minister ahead of Tokyo summit” – below is their description.

Anthony Albanese has been sworn in as Australia’s new prime minister ahead of a Tokyo summit with Joe Biden.

The move took place on Monday as votes are still being counted to determine whether Mr Albanese will control a majority in a parliament that is demanding tougher action on climate change.

Australia’s centre-left Labor Party ousted predecessor Scott Morrison’s conservative coalition at Saturday’s election.

The coalition had been in power under three prime ministers for nine years.
