"Labor has won the support of the two remaining independent MPs to form a minority government.

The independents, Rob Oakeshott and Tony Windsor, dramatically announced their decisions separately, with Mr Oakeshott being the last to signal his position to back Julia Gillard as prime minister.

But he warned: 'This is not a mandate for any government,' Mr Oakeshott said. 'This parliament is going to be different.'"
