Australia’s opposition leader has called for Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to step down amid chaos over parliamentary elections which failed to produce a clear winner.

The result is a blow to Turnbull, who had dissolved both houses of the parliament in May and called for snap elections confident that his ruling coalition would clinch an outright win.

“Mr. Turnbull clearly doesn’t know what he is doing. Quite frankly, I think he should quit,” leader of the opposition Labor Party Bill Shorten said on Monday.
