OUTGOING Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has brought the media to the attention of the insurgency of a number of people in the party to overthrow the government, or at least its first ministers.
The speech marked Mr. Turnbull's first remarks since the loss of leadership from the liberal party to Scott Morrison and his last as prime minister.
Mr. Morrison will soon address the media.
"It was extraordinary," said Turnbull.
"It has been criticized by many as many and I find it difficult to describe it in a different way.In the banquet meeting today I was impressed by how many of my colleagues have spoken or voted for loyalty over infidelity.
"How the insurgents were not rewarded by choosing Mr. Dutton, but instead my successor, whom I wish the very best, of course, Scott Morrison, a very loyal and effective treasurer."
He said the Australians would be "stunned and so horrified" by the chaotic behavior of the last week.
"Many Australians will shake their heads in disbelief about what has been done," he said.
"Imagine that a government would be startled by this kind of infidelity and deliberate infidelity, deliberately destructive action.
"Peter Dutton, Tony Abbott, and others who chose to attack the government deliberately from within, did so because they wanted to bring the government to bring down my prime ministers.
"If people are determined to do the job, they will continue to do so."
Mr. Turnbull said although it might surprise people that he remained very optimistic and positive about the future of the nation.
"I want to thank the Australian people for the support they have given me and my government over the past three years," he said.
"It was such a privilege to be the leader of this great nation I love Australia I love Australians We are the most successful multicultural society in the world and I have always defended that as one of our presented the greatest assets. "
He said it was a difficult time as prime minister, he was very proud of his record.
Mr. Morrison won the vote in the party room meeting 45-40 after days of tense meetings and panicky phone calls between party members when the country saw its government get confused.
Mr. Morrison became the sixth Prime Minister of Australia in six years.
His deputy leader will be Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg who has won the vote with an "overwhelming" vote.
A defeated Malcolm Turnbull resigned from leadership after a vote of no confidence about his ability to lead the party to the next election after he had convened the long-awaited meeting to meet the challenge for the top job that began Tuesday.
Challenger Peter Dutton hoped he had the numbers to take the step he was trying to take earlier this week, and collected the 43 signatures he needed to force Mr. Turnbull to convene the meeting.
But those who signed the document sent their vote elsewhere in the secret ballot, with many who put their name on the newspaper, understood as supporters of Mr. Turnbull.
Mr. Morrison had pledged his support to Mr. Turnbull all week.
When leaving the party room Mr. Dutton stopped talking to waiting media and congratulated Mr. Morrison.
"My course from here is to offer absolute loyalty to Scott Morrison to ensure we win the election," he said.
Mr. Dutton, former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, said they will do their best to save the government.
"We have lost a prime minister, but there is still a government to save," said Abbott. "That is what we will all do our best to do now."
Julie Bishop preferred to join the couple, but was eliminated when she received the lowest voice of the party.
Earlier today, Mr. Dutton personally handed over the petition to Mr. Turnbull, who prompted him to stop at the very last minute in convening the meeting.
Mr. Turnbull tweeted this morning that he had asked the party women to verify all 43 signatures before he called the meeting.
Mrs. Bishop and Mr. Morrison had used the phones for the past 24 hours to gather the support needed to bring Mr. Dutton to the finish.
Former Secretary of Health Greg Hunt, who retired from the cabinet this week, said that Mr. Morrison and Frydenberg were the next generation of leaders and two incredible people with extraordinary capabilities and credibility.
"They will do a great job," he said.
"It will be an ultimate joke," said commentator Laura Jayes of Sky News.
After the vote, the Advocate General followed with advice on the suitability of Mr Dutton to take a seat in Parliament.
He stated that it was unlikely that Mr Dutton would be disqualified, but it was not possible to draw a definitive conclusion without more information.
Annoying swipes circulate about the political "circus", with Tony Abbott's former chief of staff Peta Credlin labeling Mrs Bishop "Turnbull in a skirt".
Ms. Credlin said that Ms. Bishop had no chance to win the leadership and that she would not be the automator wanted by the conservatives.
"She is Malcolm Turnbull in a skirt," she told 2GB.
"It will not change the polls."
It is clear that Queensland Liberal Warren Entsch has delivered the 43rd signature of Mr. Dutton to break the deadlock.
Mr. Dutton was photographed last night at dinner with Senator Mathias Cormann, who resigned as Minister of Finance yesterday after stating that the Prime Minister had no party support.
Senator Cormann said today that he believed Mr. Dutton was the best candidate to take them to the next election.
"He can get in touch with hard-working, ambitious Australians," he told Sky News.
"I believe he will be able to reconnect with the (John) Howard comrades, he knows what it takes to win marginal seats."
Questions about Mr. Dutton's suitability to sit in Parliament were focused on his wife's subsidized childcare activities.
Mr Turnbull did not forget Mr Dutton during his stabbing press conference yesterday.
"It is important that we have access to the Advocate General's opinion on the suitability of Mr. Dutton to sit in Parliament before the party meeting," he said.
"I can not emphasize enough how important it is that everyone who wants to be Prime Minister of Australia can become a member of Parliament because a minister, let alone a prime minister, who is not eligible to sit in the House, is not able to is to be a valid minister or to exercise one of the powers of a pastor.
"So you can understand how important this problem is."
However, Mr. Dutton was still full of self-confidence and had late last night published a second legal letter stating that he was eligible to sit in Parliament.
The prime minister said that he would not stand as a candidate and resign as prime minister and as a member of the parliament if the leadership was spilled.
"I will treat that as a vote of no confidence," said Mr. Turnbull, who faced a mass exodus of ministers yesterday.
Mr. Turnbull collapsed his government and the country this week in the chaos by refusing to fall back from the top court, in an attempt to stop the challenge against him, directed by his rivals.
Public sentiment towards Australia's leaders is low, while Green's leader Richard Di Natale raises the misfortune when he says to them, "Shut your head shamelessly."
The public and humiliating failure of Mr. Turnbull, fueled when Dutton sent the government into "madness," has caused days of conflict between "bullies" and only paralyzed the parliament.
If Mr. Turnbull does not survive the day, no prime minister will have taken a full term since John Howard lost the 2007 election.
THREE ROAD COMPETITION
Bill Shorten has been gaining popularity behind Mr. Turnbull's back, even when Labor hovered in the polls, but he would be the country's favorite prime minister if Mr. Dutton were a liberal leader, according to a Roy Morgan poll.
A ReachTEL survey showed that 55 percent of voters would be less inclined to vote liberal if the former Minister of the Interior was in the top spot.
The resignation of Senator Cormann yesterday was called "the death blow" for Mr. Turnbull.
The ex-minister of finance said he believed that Mr. Dutton was the best person to lead the coalition to election victory, but when he was asked why, he dumped the question. "I'm not here to run a campaign for Peter Dutton," he said.
Mrs. Bishop would have used the phones from one day to the next and told her colleagues that she was the leader who could win most places for the party. The old sub-commander told MEPs that she would not be "the substitute for another man", according to The Australian.

The partner of the Foreign Minister, David Panton, told me Herald Sun on the runway show of Myer last night that she would win the contest. "You heard it from the horse's mouth – tomorrow at lunchtime Julie Bishop will definitely be prime minister," he said.
Asked if he would be "the first man", he replied: "Call me David."
Mrs. Bishop had called more than a dozen MPs yesterday at 7:00 PM, Guardian Australia reported. But moderate liberals said Mr. Morrison had better figures than the deputy liberal leader so far.
Ms. Bishop promised loyalty to Mr. Turnbull before, but she got more and more pressure from colleagues to flee.
Mr Turnbull's department reportedly tried to order departments to lock IT and telephones in the offices of ministers who had stopped yesterday, according to The Australian.
The newspaper reported that a source suggested that it was intended to prevent them from communicating, but the step was against the usual protocol.
An online poll of News Corp Australia revealed that Ms. Bishop was the favorite liberal leader among readers with 34 percent of the vote, followed by Mr. Turnbull on 30 percent, Tony Abbott on 17 percent and Peter Dutton on 10 percent.
This was due to a ReachTEL survey earlier this week that Mr Turnbull had at 53.5 percent, Mr Abbott at 15.5 percent, Mr Dutton at 12.5 percent, Mrs Bishop at 11.9 percent and the Mr. Morrison at 6.6 percent.
The latest research by Roy Morgan also shows that Ms. Bishop is easily the preferred partner against Mr. Shorten.
And bookmarks have led Ms. Bishop in the circles of Australia's favorite.
Potential delegates include Josh Frydenberg and Steven Ciobo, with reports that Greg Hunt could act as deputy to Mr. Dutton. Mr. Abbott denied reports he would find himself.
Mr. Turnbull refused to say whether he would ask his supporters to support Mr. Morrison.
In a blistering press conference, the Premier said Australians were "rightly shocked" at events in Parliament and "shouting" for an election.
"The reality is that a minority in the party room that is supported by others outside of parliament has tried to bully others, intimidating others to make this change of leadership they are looking for," he said.
"It has been described by many people, including those who think they can not resist it, as a form of madness."
"I never gave in to bullies, but you can imagine how busy it is to put people under pressure."
& # 39; YOU HAVE FORGOT EVERYONE FORGIVING YOURSELF & # 39;
Mr. Shorten remained largely silent when the liberals imploded, but other Labor members turned to the government.
"They are not conservatives, they are vandals," said vice-opposition leader Tanya Plibersek in parliament. "Today is the funeral of the modern liberal party."
For the sake of clarity: I have not been bullied or intimidated in signing the suicide letter to play a leading role. People have politely asked me and I refused. The people in Australia and Goldstein are very clear what they want, and I hear them. #LiberalAndProudOfIt

Penny Wong told the liberals that they had "forgotten every Australian, but yourself." You have forgotten everyone but yourself.
National MP Darren Chester tweeted: "Australia, we owe you an apology, I'm sorry, you deserve better than many of the things our federal Parliament has done for you in the last decade." Believe me, there are many good people on both sides of the room and we can do better, do not give up. "
Turnbull proponent Craig Laundy told Leigh Sales "Modern politics is broken and it needs to be resolved," while Liberal MP Tim Wilson called the petition a "suicide note" for the party.
His colleague Karen Andrews told reporters that only one signature was needed, and added, "I will not watch after Parliament is suspended today to have this case handled tomorrow."
She said she would not necessarily support Mr. Dutton.
ACT Senator Zed Seselja said there were more than 40 signatures, and told the ABC that it would be "extraordinary and I would say untenable" to leave Canberra for two weeks "without having solved this problem in the party room."

The NT News published a powerful front page with the headline "HANG YOUR HEADS IN DAMAGE", and calls events in Canberra "nothing less than outrageous".
It resounded Mr. Di Natale's speech yesterday, in which he called instability a "spectacle" and a "disgrace" when Australians fought homelessness or struggled to pay medical bills or training.
& # 39; You should be ashamed, & # 39; he shouted across the floor of the Senate.
"You are so focused on yourself that you have forgotten what the country has done to you, and that is to rule for them, not for you.
"You do not deserve to rule, you deserve to be thwarted, that's what you deserve."

Julia Gillard also weighed and said she "could understand why people would want to live in New Zealand, given the leadership of the current prime minister".
