Conservatives Sweep to Another Win in Australian National Elections

Australia's Elections:

From Voice of America

Australian Prime Minister John Howard has led his Liberal Party to a fourth consecutive win in parliamentary elections.

During the campaign, all indications were that this race would be extremely close. It has not worked out that way, with the conservative government now expected to significantly increase its parliamentary majority.
It appears that not everyone is happy with the results:
Democrat presidential contender John Forbes Kerry expressed displeasure at the Australian election outcome.

"This is the wrong election result, in the wrong place at the wrong time," Mr. Kerry said. "Think of the precedent this sets."
Why yes, that was the first thing I thought of.
