Australian Election of 2019

Post by Speak-Ez » Sun May 19, 2019 8:31 am

It seems there are a number of people surprised, including Prime Minister Scott Morrison himself, that Prime Minister Morrison's ruling coalition will be able to retain power, even though there now seems to be some doubt as to whether Prime Minister Morrison's coalition will win outright, and I'll refer you to the Sydney Morning Herald:

https://www.smh.com.au/

And let me quote something from the lead article:
"... once the numbers in Parliament become clear, amid concerns on Sunday that the Coalition lost ground in key seats after earlier appearing on track to govern in its own right following Saturday's shock election outcome."
As of 10:17PM the front page poll results are showing that ruling collation has 73 confirmed seats.

Interestingly, the BBC is stating that 75 seats are a sure thing:
"His conservative coalition has defied polls and is leading on 75 seats, the Australian Electoral Commission says. Seventy-six are needed for a majority."
Okay, they use the vocabulary "leading" and not stating any sort of sure thing.

Let me give you that link:

Whether an outright majority, or a need to bring in crossbenchers, it will be an interesting time in the Land Down Under.

An outright majority government. Even if the other 2 parties work together they do not have
enough seats to affect this government.
