Australia's government can't win majority at election -TV stations

·1 min read

SYDNEY, May 21 (Reuters) - Australia's ruling conservative government will not win enough seats to form a government, two television stations said on Saturday.

Early vote counts showed Prime Minister Scott Morrison's conservative coalition and the Labor opposition losing ground to smaller parties and climate-focussed independents, raising the prospect of a hung parliament.

"At the moment, I can't see the coalition getting to a majority on these numbers," the Australian Broadcasting Corp's election analyst Antony Green said in a live broadcast.

"At the moment, the coalition can't get a path to 76," he added, naming the minimum number of seats a party must win to hold a majority in the parliament of 151 seats.

A chyron shown by News Corp-owned cable TV channel Sky News said: "Sky projects coalition can't win majority." (Reporting by Byron Kaye; editing by David Evans)
