Morrison defeated challengers Peter Dutton and Julie Bishop in the spill motion. Bishop was eliminated in the first round of the motion, and Morrison eventually won with a margin of 45-40 against Dutton.

Josh Frydenberg will also become the deputy leader of the party after winning a spill motion against contenders Steve Ciobo and Greg Hunt. Frydenberg will take over from Bishop in the role, ending her decade-long tenure.

The party room spill motion concludes a week of intense drama within the Liberal Party, after Dutton first announced his intention to make a run for the top job.

Earlier, former PM Malcolm Turnbull voiced his intention to immediately resign from Parliament after the spill motion. 

Jesus Christ, folks. More to come.
