Australian parties seek backing of independents

CANBERRA, Australia – Leaders of Australia's two major political parties lobbied for support from

independent lawmakers to stitch together the nation's new jordans first minority government since World War II

after the closest elections in almost 50 years.

Australia's dollar was trading lower Monday as uncertainty remained over the result of weekend

federal elections, with the ruling Labor  retro jordans Party losing seats to the environment-focused Greens party in

a backlash over the government's shelving of plans to charge major polluters for every ton of carbon

gas they emit.

The final results of Saturday's vote may not be known for a week or more but both Labor and the

Liberal Party-led opposition conceded neither would achieve the 76 seats needed to form a

government in the 150-seat lower chamber.
