Melbourne (PTI): Liberal Party leader Tony Abbott was sworn in as Australia's new Prime Minister, days after his coalition ended six years of Labor party's rule. Abbott, 55, took the oath as 28th Prime Minister of Australia at Government House in Canberra in front of Governor-General Quentin Bryce along with his team of 41 ministers, assistant ministers and parliamentary secretaries.

He pledged to work for all Australians and said his cabinet is "one of the most experienced in our history".
"We pledge ourselves to serve the people of Australia, for their benefit, to the very best of our ability. We will be a problem-solving government based on values, not ideology. We will strive to govern for all Australians, including those who didn't vote for us," Abbott said. "We won't forget those who are often marginalised; people with disabilities, Indigenous people and women struggling to combine career and family.”
