Conservative leader Abbott expected to win Australian election as polls open

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australia’s conservative leader Tony Abbott, expected to win national elections on Saturday and end six years of Labor rule, cast his vote at a Sydney surf club, joking he’d rather be enjoying the beach than campaigning.

A confident Abbott, who is often photographed in his swimming costume at his local Manly Beach, was accompanied by his wife and daughters in warm spring sunshine.
