Who Wins: 73 or 72?
Among the total of 150 seats in the Australian Parliament, Coalition won 73 seats, Labor 72; remaining 5 seats were won by 4 independents and 1 Green. But no individual party won the majority or minimum of 76 seats to form the government on its own.
This is what all the fuss has been about since the Election Day 21st of August 2010. But, the party who gained the maximum seats in the election should be allowed to form the government. If any party who looses the election or wins less seats than the other party in the election and is still allowed to form the government than it is not a fair election.
Why should any nation or Australia hold an election if the loosing party is still allowed to form the government. Either we stick with 73’s win over 72 and allow the 73 seats winner to form the government over 72 seats winner or simply go to the poll. Politicians, parties or independent(s) can’t do whatever they like off course if you want to bring Australia at the level of African, South American, some European countries or Asian countries and still profess democracy and try to bully Fiji in the internal affairs? Politicians or MPs or political party are elected or chosen by the public and whoever is elected by the public as a winner and with maximum seats in the election should be allowed to form the government.
