PM Scott Morrison confirms 21 May federal election


Australians will go to the polls for a federal election on May 21 following a six-week campaign, Prime Minister Scott Morrison says.

The election will be for all 151 electorates of the lower house and 40 seats in the Senate. 

Mr Morrison’s office confirmed the timeline on Sunday following a visit to the governor-general.

The coalition has been in power since 2013 under prime ministers Tony Abbott, Malcolm Turnbull and Mr Morrison.

Anthony Albanese is hoping to steer Labor to power and become Australia’s 31st prime minister for the nation’s 47th parliament.
