Australian PM Morrison: No plans to call early election, himself a “full termer”

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has recently declared himself a “full termer”, saying he has no plans to call an early federal election.

The Australian newspaper reported on the 20th, Morrison said in the 20th of the coalition party room speech, election timing in his mind is “the most distant thing”, after speculation that he may seize the government’s successful response to the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, in the second half of next year early elections. It is reported that the House of Representatives as well as half of the Senate’s simultaneous elections will be held on August 7, 2021 at the earliest, and May 21, 2022 at the latest. Morrison said: “I’m a full term person, the election to win is too difficult. I cherish every day. We’re going to do what we said we would do for the validity time.”

At the same time, Morrison also cautioned colleagues to maintain discipline, noting that political cycles go through ups and downs, but that in “good times” there is a risk of complacency, disunity and a drop in work rate. He said: “It’s not good for governance, but more importantly, it’s not good for the communities and the people we’re here to serve, so it’s more important than ever that we maintain discipline, unity and focus.”
