CANBERRA, Australia – Polling stations opened throughout the area Australia: on Saturday for voters to decide whether The Conservative government of Prime Minister Scott Morrison will give up chances և will rule for a fourth three-year term.
Opposition leader Anthony Albanese’s left-wing Labor Party is the front-runner to win the first election since 2007.
But Morrison countered the 2019 poll by leading his coalition to narrow victory. His coalition has the smallest majority of 76 seats in the 151-seat House of Representatives, where parties need a majority to form a government.
Both leaders campaigned in Melbourne on Saturday morning before voting in their home country of Sydney. Albanese went to the polls in his inner Sydney constituency with his partner Jodi Haydon, his 21-year-old son Nathan Albanese and his robber Toto.
Albanese did not want to say whether Toto would move to the prime minister’s official residence in Sydney or Canberra if the Labor Party won.
“We are not ahead of ourselves,” Albanese said. “I am very positive, I hope this evening will be a good result.”
He referred to his humble upbringing as the only child of a single mother who became a disabled pensioner and lived in public housing.
“When you come from where I came from, one of your advantages is that you do not go ahead of yourself. “Everything in life is a bonus,” Albanese said.
Morrison voted with his wife, Jenny, at the Lily Peel Public School in his southern Sydney constituency. He later used the rare wiretapping of an alleged asylum seeker trying to enter Australian waters as a reason for voters to re-elect his government.
A statement from Australian Border Patrol said the ship was detained “in connection with a possible attempt to enter Australia illegally from Sri Lanka”.
Australia’s policy was to return those on board to their point of departure, the statement said.
Morrison argues that Labor will be weaker in preventing human traffickers from trafficking asylum seekers.
“I was here to stop this ship, but in order for me to be there to stop those who can come from here, you have to vote for the Liberals and the Nationals today,” Morrison told reporters, referring to his coalition.
A ship carrying 15 passengers in the Australian Indian Ocean has been detained Christmas Island The Australian newspaper The Weekend reports on Saturday morning.
The number of asylum seekers arriving in Australian waters by boat reached 20,000 in 2013, the year Morrison’s coalition was first elected.
Morrison’s first government role was to oversee hostilities, which returned refugee boats and virtually put an end to traders from Asia.
The first polling stations will close on the east coast of the country at 18:00 local time (04:00 ET). The west coast is two hours behind.
As a result of the epidemic, more than 48 per cent of Australia’s 17 million voters cast their ballots early or by post, which is likely to slow down the count.
Voting is mandatory for adults, with 92 percent of registered voters voting in the last election. Early voting due to travel or work started two weeks ago, ընտր The Australian Electoral Commission will continue to collect postal votes for երկու two weeks.
The government changed the rules on Friday to allow people recently infected with Covid to vote by phone.
Australian Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers said more than 7,000 polling stations had opened on time in Australia, although 15 per cent of polling station staff had Covid flu this week.
Albanese said he believed Morrison would run in the election last weekend as the Australian prime minister met with US President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a summit in Tokyo on Tuesday.
“If we get a clear result today, whoever the prime minister is, he will be on a plane to Tokyo on Monday, which is not ideal. I must say that immediately after the campaign,” Albanez said.
Analysts say Morrison left the election before the deadline to give himself more time to diminish Labor’s lead in opinion polls.
The labor force promises more costs for the care of children and the elderly. The coalition promises better economic governance as Australia’s deficit widens due to the epidemic.
Morrison said that if re-elected, his government would bring lower taxes, as well as reduced pressure on interest rates and the cost of living.
“It’s a choice of who can best manage our economy, our finances, because a strong economy guarantees your future,” Morrison said.
Newspoll, which was closely followed by The Australian newspaper on Saturday, led the Labor Party with 53% of the vote.
2188 voters took part in the poll across Australia from May 13 to 19, with a margin of error of 2.9%. In the last election of 2019, the distribution of votes among the Labor Party was 51.5 percent – 48.5 percent, the exact opposite of what was predicted by the five most popular polls in Australia, including Newspoll.
Morrison’s Conservative Liberal Party, like its anti-Labor campaign, is struggling with the so-called “light” of independent candidates to the new challenge of re-electing key lawmakers at party bases.
Chestnut independents are being sold as a greener hue than the Liberal Party’s traditional blue, wanting stronger government action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Australia than suggested by the government or Labor.
The government aims to reduce Australia’s emissions by 26% to 28% below the 2005 level by 2030. Labor has promised to cut 43 percent.
