On Saturday, Australians will finally go to the polls to decide who will lead the country after one of the longest election campaigns in recent history.
But no matter which major party wins government, they look set to be sharing power – particularly in the Senate – with a range of new faces from the likes of Nick Xenophon’s and Jacqui Lambie’s political parties.
So, which seats should we be following with interest on election night? And how have the major parties gone at selling their policies?
University of Western Australia political analyst Natalie Mast sits down again with “Poll Bludger” William Bowe to talk about how the campaign has played out and what the polls are telling us about the likely result.
