Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has called an election for 7th September, six weeks after defeating former Prime Minister Julia Gillard in a Labor party vote.

 

The date was announced after he visited the governor-general, a formality preceding an election announcement.

 

The head of the centre-left party faces stiff competition from conservative opposition leader Tony Abbott, who is favourite to win.

 

The economy, asylum seekers and climate change are among the key issues.
