On Monday night, the party held a late-night ballot, which Mr. Abbott lost with 44 votes to his communication minister's 54 votes, making Mr. Turnbull Australia's fourth prime minister since 2013.

The Internet has reacted to the news with the hashtag #PutOutYourOnions, commemorating Abbott for his run as prime minister — and mocking the time he ate an onion (skin and all) while touring an onion farm in Tasmania.
