Election live: Day of reckoning arrives


Comments Print article

Check back here through the day for updates from the final day of the election campaign. InDaily will be blogging live from Labor and Liberal HQs during tomorrow night’s count.

1.30pm In lieu of anything else – a gaffe

It’s been a quiet day on the campaign, apart from a Steven Marshall slip of the tongue (see 11.18am entry below).

Attention on this “gaffe” is gathering, so we suggest another look at this Campaign Diary entry from a few weeks ago.

11.18am A long campaign for Marshall

Steven Marshall must be exhausted after the lengthy campaign.

At a media conference at the Robern Menz factory this morning, the Liberal leader had this message for voters:

“If people in South Australia want change, they want a better future, they want to grow the economy, they need to vote Labor tomorrow.”

Whoops. Better pop a few Fruchocs.

8.40am Head to head

Jay Weatherill and Steven Marshall are going head-to-head again on morning radio, today on ABC 891 breakfast.

The themes are familiar – Marshall pushing the need for change and growing the economy, and Weatherill accusing his counterpart of hiding his real plans.

6.30am Poll jitters

Liberals are nervous, and Labor optimists are keeping the flame alive on the final day of campaigning.

Two polls show a tight contest. Advertiser/Galaxy polls in the marginal Labor-held seats of Mitchell and Newland show the ALP clinging on, while a Newspoll shows the two-party preferred number favouring the Liberals 53-47.

The latter poll has a wide margin of error.
