Nation anxiously waiting for prime minister to call elections

Bestinau got that-

Opposition leader Anthony Albanese has called on Scott Morrison to call an electionafter the prime minister was home on a Saturday instead of visiting the governor general.

Saturday morning is a traditional time for prime ministers to visit the governor general to call elections.

But Mr Morrison did not, even if he will soon run out of days to pull the trigger for the upcoming vote.

The election has not officially started yet, but a video posted to Mr Morrison’s Twitter account shows the Prime Minister well in campaign mode.

The video titled “Why I love Australia” is a combination of soaring orchestral music and Mr Morrison touting the achievements of his reign.

“There are 40,000 people living in Australia today because of the way we handled the pandemic,” he said.

“700,000 people still have a job.”

Mr Albanese expressed his impatience earlier today in Sydney.

“He makes Australians wait before calling the election,” Albanian said.

“But he just has to keep going.

“He should let the Australian people decide.”

Governor General David Hurley arrived in Canberra earlier today.

If Mr Morrison calls for elections on Sunday, he must be back in the capital in person to visit Government House.

With the government’s term of office drawing to a close, elections can now only be held on May 14 or 21.
