    Not quite though. Tony Abbott won an election meaning anyone who voted liberal knew they were voting for him to be PM. Mark Latham never won (thank god).

    I think it's because he's said to be pro-Palestine? Was he one of the MP's who refused to sign the London document about antisemitism?

    To be fair it's a controversial document many academics struggled with.

    Just saw this in my Facebook newsfeed and thought I would share it for those who haven't decided yet..

    https://medium.com/@LiberalAus/five-...5ce#.8641i25mi

    Five things you need to read before you vote

    These are the important issues you probably haven’t seen this election.
    The Coalition has a plan for lower taxes, a strong new economy and more jobs for Australians. Here’s five reasons to support us at this election.

    1. Lower taxes
    We’re helping small businesses get ahead by lowering their taxes. Small and medium businesses employ over 5 million Australians and are the engine room of our economy. By lowering business taxes, employers can invest in our economy and create more jobs for Australians.
    We’re also providing tax relief to hard working families, rewarding Australians for doing more overtime, picking up additional shifts, taking a promotion or a better new job, without being penalised by paying more tax at the higher rate.

    2. Economic Growth
    By giving small business the confidence to invest in Australian jobs, our economy will grow. In particular, recent agreements signed by the Government with China, Japan and South Korea have made it easier for Australian small businesses to sell their premium Australians products to customers in these significant overseas markets.
    Economic growth leads to more jobs, improved public services and higher incomes. In short, it means that the quality of life for all Australians will increase.

    3. More jobs
    When businesses pay less tax, have incentives to invest in Australia and the opportunity to grow by accessing new overseas markets, they can employ more Australians.
    The simple truth is that growing businesses need more employees, and by encouraging businesses to grow and invest in our economy, more Australians will be in work in better paying jobs.

    4. Boosting Innovation and Science
    Our Innovation and Science agenda will help us transition from the mining and construction boom to a new economy. By providing support to innovators and start-ups, we can help more Australians bring their great ideas to market.
    We are also preparing our children for the jobs of the future by boosting participation in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

    5. Guaranteed funding for health, education and roads
    Despite what you may have heard, we are actually increasing spending on both health and education. And we will NOT privatise Medicare.

    Our plan will deliver better schools and world class healthcare.
    The Turnbull Liberal Team is investing record amounts in our schools with total Commonwealth funds reaching $73.6 billion over the next four years. That’s an increase of 26%.

    The Turnbull Liberal Team has also provided an additional guaranteed $2.9 billion to public hospitals over the next three years. That’s an increase of up to 6.5% a year, with funding to be focused on delivering better patient outcomes, particularly when it comes to caring for patients with chronic and complex needs.

    And we’re investing a record $50 billion in Australia’s land infrastructure — to improve road and rail links, reduce travel times and support economic growth, including $500 million that’s been allocated to fix road black spots.

    I made that statement because he is pro-Palestinian but I mistakenly had him confused with another politician regarding the Israeli boycott; in fact, Albanese was the one opposing the boycott, so I retract my previous statement 👼🏼 but I do think that a "pro Palestinian" deputy prime minister who is "critical of Israel's policies" is a danger to Australian-Israeli Jews such as myself.
