Local elections rout, the prospects for the Australian ruling coalition are worrisome

Australia’s second-largest state, Victoria, held a local council election on the 24th. The Labor Party won a big victory and is expected to win 55 of the 88 seats.

The Labour Party is the ruling party in Victoria. There was only one weak majority advantage before the election. In the election campaign, the Labor Party promised to build large-scale infrastructure and build railways, highways and schools. The opposition Liberal Party played a safety card. The campaign platform focused on combating crime and maintaining law and order.

Although the final vote count results have not yet been released, the Victorian Election Commission expects the Labour Party to be expected to win 55 of the 88 seats, significantly expanding the majority.
