Political power just changed hands in Australia after the country had its federal election on Sept 7 and the Coalition became the majority, causing Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to turn over the reins of the government to Opposition leader Tony Abbott.
Here is the video of the turnover of The Lodge, the official residence of the prime minister.
The changing of guards have been quite frequent in Australia since Mr Rudd had just returned to power in June 2013 after he was ousted by then Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard in a political coup. History repeated itself when he grabbed back his position from Ms Gillard a few months ago.
Writing in The Guardian on Saturday, Ms Gillard finally broke her three-month silence on her depose and described the experience as similar to being hit by a fist.
"Losing power is felt physically, emotionally, in waves of sensation, in moments of acute distress," Australia's first female prime minister wrote.
"I know now that there are odd moments of relief as the stress ekes away and the hard weight that felt like it was sitting uncomfortably between your shoulder blades slips off," she continued.
Ms Gillard said that words of comfort or finding a memento at the back of a cupboard when she packed up and even jokes about the old times ease the pain which she felt in her guts and nerve endings.
Now that the mistake of replacing her was validated by Mr Rudd's humiliating loss at the polls, Ms Gillard emphasised that her ouster "was only done - indeed expressly done - on the basis that Labor might do better at the election."
However, "Labor unambiguously sent a very clear message that is cared nothing other than the prospects of survival of members of parliament at the polls."
On the same weekend, from one ex-prime minister to a PM wannabe, billionaire and now politician Clive Palmer stressed the importance of power since his Palmer United Party holds the balance of power in the Senate.
"My vote in Parliament wouldn't be worth much ... what we've shown is we're capable of challenging 50 per cent of the vote in Australia. From a political point of view, that is more important," Brisbane Times quoted Mr Palmer.
Mr Palmer is leading Ted O'Brien in the Sunshine Coast electorate by a slim 718 votes, but he believes his opponent will win because of alleged tampering of the ballot boxes to protect the two-party status quo.
He insisted that he won the seat by a landslide on the night of Sept 7, thus the possibility of him losing to Mr O'Brien would "cast a great cloud over the electoral process." His party won 28 per cent of the primary vote in Fairfax.
