Voting for independents means “inviting a suspended parliament”: Morrison

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says Australians are “very concerned about the chaos of a suspended parliament,” but the decision rests with the voters.

“I’ve been in a suspended parliament and I know the chaos it can warrant from that,” he told Sky News Australia.

“A government that has to bargain every day for its existence is not a way to govern a country at a time of great uncertainty”.

Morrison said that “one of the great advantages” of his government was the majority, which helped make decisions faster and without bartering with other parties.

“Uncertainty and chaos, that’s what you get with a suspended parliament, and voting for independents is what you’re inviting,” he said.
