2022 is significant for the Australian economy as the next federal elections are poised to take place on May 12. It will be interesting to see whether the labour party or the liberals will win this time. As we come closer to the big day, let’s look at some of the factors that will play a crucial role in framing public opinion for the Australian elections in 2022. 

Climate change

As the concern of climate change is widely escalating across the world, Australia’s coal relation is significant to be looked at. Interestingly, both parties have shown different approaches to the subject of decarbonisation.  While the liberals persist in achieving decarbonisation through advanced technologies, the labour party persists in carbon taxes.

Covid-19 pandemic

How can we skip the pandemic when we talk about the upcoming federal elections? The Covid-19 pandemic is likely to play a crucial role in framing the voter’s mindset in May 2022. The pandemic has definitely caused massive problems for the Australian economy. But, till now, more than 90% of the Australian population above the age of 16 is double vaccinated. So, despite the initial blows, the Morrison government has done substantially better in handling the pandemic from most of the economies.

Relations with China

The mindset of Australians has significantly been dropping negative towards China. China's relationship and other countries have been changing because of Xi Jinping’s hard messages. Thus, the Indo-Pacific relations are playing cautious cards now. Additionally, Scott Morrison’s possessiveness for the motherland and straightway signals for China might take away the votes of Chinese Australians from his basket. In the coming few weeks, it would be interesting to see how both the parties present their views on relations with China in their campaigns.

Industrial relations

Another deciding factor for the upcoming elections would be industrial relations. Australian citizens demand better jobs with job security, higher wages, a better work environment and enhanced employment relationships. The Australian labor party has time and again spoken about uplifting the workspaces for Aussies.
