Anthony Albanese leads Labor to Australian election victory – Australia woke up to a new government this week as voters ignored the right wing headlines and support form a mass media run mostly by Rupert Murdoch.
Anthony Albanese is one of the country’s longest-serving politicians, he promised voters “safe change” as he worked to kick out the conservative Liberal-National coalition which has been in power since 2013.
Voters looking for more action on climate change, having witnessed the horrific impact of fire, drought, flood and ocean surges across our huge continent while also witnessing the inaction and lack of support from an out of touch and corrupt government who did not even accept Climate Change as an issue.
Where ousted Prime Minister Scott Morrison is a self-described “bulldozer”, Mr Albanese vows to be a “builder”. After the pandemic, which saw Australian states cut off from each other and cities splintered by strict lockdowns, fostering unity is a top priority for the new leader.
“I want to bring Australians together. I want to seek our common purpose and promote unity and optimism, not fear and division,” he said in a victory speech on Saturday night.
