Scott Morrison has reportedly still not moved out of Kirribilli House following federal election defeat

Former Prime Minister Scott Morrison has yet to move out of Kirribilli House, but there’s an innocent explanation behind it.

Former Prime Minister Scott Morrison has yet to move from Kirribilli House despite being defeated in federal elections nearly two weeks ago.

Kirribilli House is now the home of Anthony Albanese after he became Australia’s 31st Prime Minister, but Mr Morrison was seen there last Sunday.

Morrison’s spokesman told NewsCorp that the former prime minister was still moving out of Kirribilli House, the prime minister’s secondary official residence in Sydney.

Mr Morrison is understood to be giving his home in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire a lick of paint and a makeover before moving back in with his wife Jenny and two daughters Lily and Abbey.

Morrison followed in the footsteps of his Liberal predecessors, John Howard and Tony Abbott, by making the heritage-listed Sydney Harbor mansion his family during his time in office.

But now, an MP, Mr. Morrison has no claim on the property.

“(He is) in the process of moving out,” his spokesman said.

“There are two weeks that you have to move.

“That’s the protocol. So there is no delay.”

Morrison had already moved out of The Lodge, the prime minister’s main official residence in Canberra.

Rumors of his refusal to budge created a social media storm, with the hashtag #SquatMorrison surfacing on Twitter.

Morrison’s scale in the house is slowly approaching Howard’s extended departure, after it took him 16 days to begin the moving process in 2007.

A moving truck was seen at the Lodge last Thursday to help Mr. Morrison and his family move.

Flood victim Nikki Durant, who used to clean the Morrisons’ pool, has been living at the family’s home in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire, after her Northern Rivers home was destroyed by the devastating New Wales floods of the South.

Morrison stepped down as leader of the Liberal Party after his historic defeat in the federal election.

He has confirmed that he will remain in parliament as a member of Cook’s seat in Sydney.
