It looks like John Howard (Liberal/Democrat) will get another term as Prime Minister of Australia. (Source: ABC) Too bad I expected the Australian Labour Party‘s Mark Latham to win and become the next Prime Minister.
According to political analysts since Australia is enjoying economic growth under John Howard it is imprudent to unseat a “boom time” PM.
Believe it or not TVNZ’s TV One is having an Australian election special as I am writing this post.
As of writing this post (0043 NZST), Mark Latham is on TV conceding.
