Tony Abbott led the Liberal-National coalition to beat the Labor Party led by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in the federal election on Sept 7. Let's have a look at the probable important names in the next government.
Mr Abbott, 55, has spent almost 4 years as the opposition leader before he becomes the next prime minister of Australia. The coming days will witness him to be sworn in as the most important person of the country. Mr Abbott was a journalist before joining politics. He is an Oxford University scholar as well.
Mr Hockey, 48, describes himself as a modern liberalist. He is all set to be responsible for Australia's economy worth $1.5 trillion. Mr Hockey handled several ministerial responsibilities under John Howard during his tenure as the prime minister. He studied law and arts from the University of Sydney.
Mr Truss, 64, is all set to become the next deputy prime minister of Australia. He was a minister for 10 years during John Howard's tenure as the prime minister. He has been working extensively on fisheries, forestry and agriculture. Mr Truss informed ABC that the squabbles did not prove that there was a lack of unity among the parties.
Ms Bishop, 57, is all set to become the next foreign minister of Australia. She left a career in commercial litigation to secure victory in a parliament seat in 1998. She is the highest ranking woman candidate in the coalition. Ms Bishop studied law at Adelaide University.
Mr Robb, 62, dealt with agricultural politics in the earlier part of his career. He was an animal health officer in the 1970s and the 1980s. He was responsible for directing the successful election campaign of the Liberal Party in 1996.
Ms Credlin, 42, is all set to become the chief of staff for Mr Abbott. She called herself an "alpha female" in the 2011 interview with The Australian. She also called herself as the "scariest woman in Canberra." Ms Credlin was the adviser of Malcolm Turnbill and Bendan Nelson as well.
