Anticipating a possible early election, Federal Opposition leader Bill Shorten has released Labor’s election plan.

Mr Shorten outlined a number of issues, which Labor plans to tackle come election time. He said their campaign would focus on five key issues.

“A fair taxation system, standing up for Australian jobs, [and] a properly funded Medicare system — where it’s your Medicare card, not your credit card, that determines the level of your healthcare,” he said.

“We’ll fight it around schools, TAFE and universities, where working class and middle-class kids, every child, gets every opportunity in every school and we’ll fight it on making sure we’ve got fair dinkum policies on renewable energy.

“[The Government] needs to stop threatening the Australian people with the threat of early elections, just to cover up their lack of action on the economy of Australia.”

One issue he did not mention was superannuation, which is a contentious issue for many Australians.

Labor’s general policy around the issue is to address tax breaks that benefit the wealthy and make it harder middle class Australians to save for retirement.

However, Mr Shorten is yet to address how they will specifically tackle the issue in the next election.

Malcolm Turnbull is considering going to the polls on Saturday July 2, reports the ABC, meaning it won’t be too long before both parties start to ramp up their campaigns.

The Coalition is yet to release their election strategies, but are expected to make changes to superannuation and tax breaks when they do.

Are you disappointed Labor didn’t address superannuation in their election plan? Who would you like to be our next Prime Minister?

    Once again we have to listen to lies, lies and more lies until the election. Then we hear disappointment after disappointment after the election. Just a load of rubbish while these pollies are only there to feather their own nest. If the pollies were genuine they would not take a pay rise, would drop all the benefits, perks, lurks and extra super payment to put back into our country instead of bleeding it dry and taxing those that cant afford it. I’m over them all!!

    At least Labor is saying something! But not enough detail from either major party yet. And we still have to hear from The Greens and the minor parties.

    Not a chance with this bloke leading their party. He’s an embarrassment.

      2007 to 2013 were probably the worst govt we had in my living memory. That peanut did everything he could to continually disrupt it, for his own agenda. He’s a weak man.

    Do any of them do enough? No they do not, but I think Labor is the lesser of two evils.

        what we all need is a party that we can trust to look after pensioners an seniors , an everyday aussies , an just for once for the polies to keep their promises of what they promised to get elected , as for far too long they have promised lots an dumped them in the bin once elected .so the trust has been broken each time . an they need to stop wasting money that is not needed on their pays , trips an bonuses etc, they should get a reasonable pay packet for the job that they do an not be over paid as they are now ,

      Wayne Ferne sorry you judge people by appearances. You have no idea what I’ve been through. I hope you never have to.
      if you are referring to a unit that is for sale on my page, I shared that post for a friend. However, I am happy with what we have achieved through some misfortunes, sheer grit and hard work.
