Well it looks like Australia may have decided, and if you’re a leader of one of the two major parties in the country you’d be feeling a bit worried, or should be.
Basically Australia has said that we don’t want either party to be in power and so it looks likely that the result of the election will be a hung parliament with neither party being able to form government in its own right. They’ll need to try to cut a deal with the three independent members and one green to see who takes power.
This is the first time that there has been a hung parliament in Australia since WWII.
It must come as a shock to politicians when the verdict of the people is “You’re both untrustworthy.” Should make for interesting viewing over the next however long it takes them to decide who wins.
