Australian Prime Minister sets general election date

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.

He also asked voters to focus on the current government’s track record.
