Submission + - Labor Party wins Australian Federal Election (smh.com.au)

kamatsu writes: "The Australian Labor Party has won the Australian Federal Election with at least a 22 seat majority. Among the ALP's policies is a fiber-to-the-node broadband network nationwide, as part of a plan to improve national infrastructure. Other policies cover areas such as climate change, health and education. The former Prime Minister John Howard has also potentially been ousted from his own parliamentary seat of Bennelong, with Labor candidate Maxine McKew taking a slight margin ahead, however neither party is willing to call the seat until postal votes are counted. The former Prime Minister's anointed successor, Peter Costello, has rejected the nomination to be leader of the opposition and instead will have a brief tenure in the back bench before retiring. This leaves the position of the leader of the Liberal party uncertain over the next few days as members are nominated and elected, with Malcolm Turnbull currently favorited for the position."
