Independent Windsor Says He'll Decide on Backing Abbott, Gillard This Week

Australian independent lawmaker Tony Windsor said he hopes to make a decision “by the end of the week” to support either the Labor Party or the Liberal- National coalition.

Windsor plans to attend a “range of meetings” this week before deciding on which party to support, he told Channel Ten’s “Meet the Press” program today. He said a second election is an “option,” though unlikely. Windsor said that he and fellow independent legislators Bob Katter and Robert Oakeshott may come to different conclusions.
