Australian stocks have fallen after Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull recalled parliament and brought the Budget forward, setting the scene for an early election.

The benchmark S&P/ASX 200 closed 0.3% lower at 5,166.57 points in Sydney.

Mr Turnbull has been trying to pass through labour reform bills but has faced hostility to it from the senate.

As a result, he's threatened to dissolve both houses of parliament and call an early election on 2 July.
