Ratings not affected by PM change: Moody's

"Australia's AAA rating is supported by the country's very high level of economic strength and moderate level of government debt," Moody's Vice President Martin Petch said in a statement.
Treasurer Scott Morrison will become Australia's new prime minister after winning a Liberal party leadership vote on Friday, ending an internecine battle that has scarred the conservative government ahead of an election due by May 2019.
