Scott Morrison's family photo after being sworn in for a new term as Australia's Prime Minister, emphasized the modest qualities that brought him a shock of election victory.
Although many top politicians and their image-conscious advisers were concerned about the small details of such a portrait, Morrison's family photo was a little more like the number of Australian families present at such an occasion.
From the broken right shoe of his daughter to ScoMo & # 39; s poorly fitting pants, the photo has an everyday charm, with his wife Jenny, mother Marion and daughters who all wear simple, understated styles.
The portrait continued a theme of the election campaign, in which Mr. Morrison's coalition successfully presented itself as a representative of daily voters in the middle and working class – the & # 39; silent Australians & # 39; – while setting Labor as the inner city party and the rich elites.

& # 39; May I, of course, ask others, apart from his excellence, to welcome the first indigenous cabinet … the honorable Ken Wyatt AM, Member of Parliament, as minister for indigenous Australians, & # 39; said Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
All frontbenchers received a stick from the Australian flag, which has made Mr. Morrison a feature of his daily dress code since taking over liberal leadership in August last year.
The new Morrison front bench largely held the presidential election in place, but also promoted some first-timers to new roles.

At the first post-election meeting with coalition MPs on Tuesday, Mr. Morrison emphasized that his & # 39; hungry, dedicated and unified & # 39; team would concentrate on the ambitions of ordinary Australians during their third tenure.
& # 39; They are the reason that we have the ability and the great privilege to serve them every day & he said to colleagues.
& # 39; We must burn every day for the Australian people to have the privilege of serving them, in this banquet hall and as a government. & # 39;
The prime minister warned his ministers that there was a wealth of talent in the ranks of the government to keep the pressure on them to perform.
And he told his colleagues that he and his office would be accessible to them and he expected the same from his ministers.
The 46th Parliament is expected to open in the first week of July.
