Deputy Prime Minister and Nationals’ Leader Barnaby Joyce has addressed the National Press Club.
He said while this election may be fought by politicians, it is an expression of the fundamental democratic right of the Australian people.
“It is a choice between a strong Coalition Government and a Labor opposition presenting one of the most policy-lite election pitches in living history,” he said.
“And then there are the Independents, who are even worse, and would be merely one discordant voice in a sea of chaos.”
