Prime Minister Scott Morrison described the egg-thrower as "cowardly".
Australia's elections rugged a bit on Tuesday when a protester attempted to crack a Prime Minister egg Scott Morrison's head.
The attacker's egg thrown from close range seemed to fend off the politician at a Country Women's Association event in New South Wales, where Morrison fought ahead of the May 18th general election.
The woman was overcome by Morrison's stringent security services and was later seen holding the venue with an egg box in her hand.
New South Wales police said they had a "25-year-old woman taken into custody after a jail incident with the Prime Minister in Albury".
It was not yet clear if she would be charged.
In the Fracas, an elderly woman was bundled, and Morrison, who is in the polls before the prime minister vote on May 1
Morrison attacked the incident to attack his political critics.
"My concern about the incident in Albury today affected the older woman who had kicked her, I helped her up and hugged her," he tweeted.
"We will withstand the brawl, whether it's these cowardly activists who have no respect for anyone, or militant unionists who stand over small businesses and their employees at workplaces."
Union leader Sally McManus praised the Prime Minister for this settlement.
"How dare you accuse us of this and make the union," she tweeted.
"You do not seem to have any respect for the truth or worry about killing your Australian colleagues, we would never endorse such behavior."
The leader of the opposition party Bill Billen wanted to take over the job of the prime minister. He described the attack as "horrible and disgraceful."
"The Prime Minister has my full sympathy," he added, telling reporters in Melbourne, "In Australia, we have non-violent elections."
The incident followed a highly publicized case of attack on far-right politician Fraser Anning, who was hit on the head by an egg during a press conference.
His youthful attacker protested against comments. Anning made the massacre of 51 Muslim worshipers in two Christchurch mosques to immigrants to New Zealand
