Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison Sunday basked in the glow of a "miracle" election victory that sparked praise from the U.S. president, soul searching on the left and speculation about what policies he will pursue.Projections by national broadcaster ABC showed the coalition with 73 seats and leading in the count in four others.The results showed a more mixed message from an electorate that appears increasingly split on the significant issues of the day.Ex-Prime Minister Tony Abbott -- the poster boy for the right wing of the Liberal party -- was unceremoniously turfed out of office after 25 years holding the same seat, with voters opting for a green independent.Despite his high political stock, Morrison may face a rocky three-year term.Morrison finds himself in the unusual position of having made few promises to the electorate beyond extending tax cuts.
