This 12-year-old was Australia's PM for two days (on Wikipedia)

Orly Fenelon

Australia has officially had four prime ministers since 2013.

But a 12-year-old from Brisbane named himself as the fifth over the weekend and nobody knew, not even Malcolm Turnbull who is the current PM.

There weren't any breaking news alerts or a big political backlash - Orley Fenelon simply edited himself in to the Wikipedia list of Australian Prime Ministers.

The site didn't even notice the edit to take it down.

Speaking to Newsbeat, Orley explains: "Me and my friends were talking about the American political race and we came up with the idea of 'Orley for Prime Minister'.

"I posted on Instagram and then edited the Wikipedia page."

He thought it would be deleted straight away.

It wasn't.

"It got to a point where I thought someone would write a book [about Australian politics] and I'd be included in it.

"While I was prime minister nothing really happened. It was a pretty quiet term," he laughs.

There hasn't been an Australian prime minister who has served a full political term since 2007.

Orley now wants to be an internet prankster but if he does end up being prime minister of Australia he says he would make it a republic, getting rid of the queen as head of state.

But for now it's back to the year seven classroom.
