Australia Elections 2016 is around the corner, which is prompting everyday twists in the political scenario of the nation.
Malcolm Turnbull has now officially launched his election campaign in inner-western Sydney seat of Reid. He announced two of the former prime ministers of Australia, John Howard and Tony Abbott, will be representing the front and centre to make an effective appeal to the “new Liberal heartland.” Both the coalition and opposition Labor Party have come face to face on the Sydney electoral battlefield after their last campaigns in Brisbane in 2013.
Where Turnbull is planning to bring Abbott into focus in Aussie elections to win seats, the former prime minister’s ex-chief of staff Peta Credlin calls Turnbull a “patrician.” He has warned the Aussie PM to play safe while campaigning for July 2 elections. She has asked Turnbull to put more efforts to grab the attention of Australians in the elections, which is to be held a few days later. According to
Turnbull was asked to put more efforts to grab the attention of Australians in the elections, which is to be held a few days later. According to Yahoo News, Credlin has claimed that giving 12 or 13 interviews was not enough to win elections.
“Punters want to see you fight to the wire,” Credlin told reporters on Tuesday. “He looks a bit patrician that he’s standing back – everybody else can campaign and I just expect you to vote for me.”
The campaigning at Sydney appears to be amongst the last strategies Turnbull could imply for Australia Elections 2016. According to The Australian, the prime minister is intended towards grabbing the key marginal seats located in the west of Sydney. It has been observed that Turnbull was taking all debates back to economic stability and management.
The prime minister’s launch on Sunday saw the use of the names of Abbott and Howard, while Opposition party leader Bill Shorten, who launched the campaign in Sydney last Sunday, has been supported by former prime ministers Bob Hawke, Paul Keating and Julia Gillard. The ex-PMs have helped in launching campaign for their party to give a tough competition to the Coalition led by Turnbull.
