Australians vote in cliffhanger election

Some 15.6 million people are casting votes across AustraliaAustralians flocked to vote in national elections Saturday with conservative leader Malcolm Turnbull appearing to have a slight edge over Labor’s Bill Shorten, culminating a marathon race where economic management has become a key issue in the wake of the Brexit vote. After an eight-week campaign, a Newspoll of 4,135 people published in The Australian newspaper showed Turnbull’s Liberal/National coalition 50.5 to 49.5 percent in front on a two-party basis, while a poll in the Sydney Morning Herald had them in a dead heat. Shorten’s Labor needs to pick up at least 19 seats in the 150-seat parliament to secure the 76 it needs to govern in its own right.
