Former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has congratulated his successor Scott Morrison for his unexpected win in Saturday's federal election.

"Congratulations @ScottMorrisonMP on an outstanding personal victory," Mr Turnbull tweeted on Sunday.

"Australians have once again backed the Coalition to deliver a strong economy, more jobs & lower taxes."

Vote counting will continue but Labor conceded on Saturday night it will not be able to form government.
