Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten says Victorians have responded favourably to Labor’s policies for hospitals and schools, rather than cuts and division.
‘I was pleased for the work of Daniel Andrews and their team, nothing should take way from their success,’ Mr Shorten told the Nine Network on Monday.
Premier Daniel Andrews and his team swept to victory at the weekend in a result that looks likely to deliver about 55 Labor MPs to the 88-seat lower house.
‘Everywhere I went on the Saturday, a lot of people were coming up to me saying when is the federal election and why the federal government so divided all the time?’ Mr Shorten said.
‘There is no doubt when you argue for better hospitals and schools and not for cuts and chaos and division, people respond positively to that. It was a very good weekend.’
