The election will be one of the biggest turf of war between the current Coalition government and the Australian Labour Party. Till now, both the parties have accused each other over inefficiencies in both the governance style. Labour Party has emphasised over the inability of present government in failing to control corruption and stagnated growth rate. They have even accused the present government to be unstable, as under the current regime, for three times the position of the Prime Minister has changed. There is a defence from the current government that, under their regime, the efficiency across the sectors has improved and purchasing strength has improved. Sectors such as mining, utilities are working at their par potential along with the public administration.

As per analysts, mining and utilities sectors have performed well continuously; however, sectors such as manufacturing, construction and agriculture are yet to reach their peak potential.

Important stocks under mining are Saracen Minerals Holdings Ltd. (ASX: SAR), Whitehaven Coal Ltd. (ASX: WHC), whereas important stocks under utilities are Woodside Petroleum Limited (ASX: WPL), and Santos Limited (ASX: STO).
