Coalition scrapes through but Turnbull needs to alter course

Nicholas Barry writes in The Conversation (11.7.16) about the policy and political challenges facing re-elected Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, as the Coalition parties claimed just enough seats to form government.

‘The Coalition has – finally – fallen over the line and will form government following the 2016 election, though it is still unclear whether it has secured a majority in its own right.

‘The challenges Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull now faces are formidable. Although first-term governments often suffer a swing against them, the closeness of the result means the Coalition needs to reflect on what went wrong during its first term in office.’
