Disillusionment in Australia poll

Close political race leaves many undecided ahead of Saturday's vote.

    Voter disillusionment with Australia's ruling Labor and the conservative Liberal-National opposition coalition parties is reportedly at an all-time high as Australians prepare to head to the polls on Saturday.

    Among the major concerns of the electorate are immigration and the country's economy.

    And since Australians are required to vote by law, smaller parties are likely to get a boost of support in one of the closest national votes in decades.
