Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called for a federal election to take place on 21 May.

Morrison’s conservative coalition government is seeking a fourth successive three-year term in power.

With the coalition trailing main rivals the Labor Party in many opinion polls, Morrison cited the Australian public’s familiarity with a Liberal-led government as a crucial reason to keep them in power.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is hoping to woo voters with an economy that’s looking strong as the government seeks a come-from-behind win off a narrative of solid economic management. However, the opposition Labor Party, led by Anthony Albanese, is now far ahead in opinion polling. He also asked voters to focus on the current government’s track record.
