Canberra - Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard will form a minority government after two “kingmaker” independent candidates declared their support for her on Tuesday.

"I intend with my vote, for what it's worth, to support the Labor Party," Tony Windsor told reporters in Canberra.

The other independent, Rob Oakeshott, revealed his decision a few minutes later.

Another of the "kingmakers" earlier declared his support for conservative leader Tony Abbott.
