SYDNEY, May 17: Australians go to the polls on Saturday in a contest to determine whether conservative Prime Minister Scott Morrison can maintain his shaky grip on power or whether the center-left Labor party will return to office after six years in opposition.
Opinion polls show Morrison trailing Labor as voters turn on his coalition government after six years of tumultuous rule that has seen two leaders ousted while in office, although polls narrowed during the campaign.
The winner will need to claim at least 76 seats in the 151-seat lower House of Representatives. Former prime minister Tony Abbott is struggling to retain the affluent seat in Sydney he has held for 25 years.    -REUTERS
