The main stone

Ten days after the parliamentary elections in Australia, one thing is clear: the new Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, will be able to rule in parliament with a narrow majority and will not depend on the votes of other parties. Another seat was added on Tuesday after it became clear on Monday that the Labor Party would win 76 of the 151 seats in the Lok Sabha. The final result is now 77 for Labor, 58 for the Conservative Australian Liberal National Party coalition, and 16 for the Independent and other parties.

Australia’s electoral system is complex, so it can take a long time to determine who wins a constituency. However, the Social Democrats clearly won the May 21 parliamentary election – as was already clear on election night.

For the first time in almost ten years, the Labor Party is back in power. Albanese became the new Prime Minister on May 23. The Conservative coalition led by former Prime Minister Scott Morrison has failed. Independent candidates, on the other hand, and the Australian Greens won more than the previous vote.
