OSLO/CANBERRA (Reuters) – Two center-left governments on opposite sides of the globe are likely to lose power this month, despite both presiding over commodity-fuelled booms while other economies sank into crisis.
Voters in Australia and Norway are almost certain to boot out their governments within a couple of days of each other, fed up with blunders and scandals, and worried that wealth created by high minerals and oil prices has not been spent wisely.
CANBERRA (Reuters) – Australia’s Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, struggling to avert a landslide election defeat in six days, pledged tax breaks and education programs on Sunday to counter a slowing economy in a last-ditch plea to voters.
Rudd, promising a “New Way” in his main campaign launch in the battleground state of Queensland, sought to capitalize on unease among voters about promised conservative opposition spending cuts, warning they would hurt jobs and confidence.
