As per news report of NDTV, Australians go to the voting booths on May 21, with recent polls showing PM Morrison's Liberal-National coalition on track to lose to centre-left Labor, ending nine years of conservative government. PM Scott Morrison, whose standing with voters has plunged since mid-2020, acknowledged on Friday being a "bulldozer" but said he would change after the election. He continued that theme today, telling reporters on the campaign trail in Melbourne that what mattered most as prime minister was to "get the job done", but promising to "explain my motives and my concerns and empathise a lot more" in the future. Among criticisms of PM Morrison in his time in office have been his handling of bushfires that killed 24 people and left thousands homeless, and his response to shortfalls of COVID-19 vaccines and then rapid antigen tests.
