The opposition Australian Labor Party (ALP) has secured victory in four of Saturday's five by-elections.
ALP leader Bill Shorten declared it a "super Saturday night" for the ALP after the party increased its share of the vote in the electorates of Fremantle, Perth, Braddon and Longman to heap pressure on the governing Liberal National Party (LNP) and Prime Minister (PM) Malcolm Turnbull.
"Friends, can I say that tonight is another sign post into the destination that matters for Australians. A Labor government after the next general election," Shorten said in his victory speech in Longman on Saturday night.
"I promise the Australian people, we will continue the work of putting together a policy agenda for the next national Labor government, a program which will re-win the confidence and the support of working class and middle-class Australians," he added.
