Australia’s six-week election campaign has entered its final days with polling showing a narrow victory likely for the center-left opposition Labor Party, but an unexpected result in 2019 is still hanging over both sides ahead of voting on Saturday.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition leader Anthony Albanese are rushing to visit must-win seats across the country, with Morrison campaigning in the vital state of Western Australia while Albanese heads to three different states in one day.
