The UK has such large numbers of Australians living and working here, in fact more than anywhere else in the world, it is no surprise that they could have such an influence on the election

A study conducted by Kings College London has predicted that Australian expats living in the UK could determine the result of the upcoming federal election. Around 300,000 Australians are currently living in the UK could sway election votes by attending the ballot at the Australia House in London. Dr Jatinder Mann from the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies at King’s College London explained, ‘As we found in the last election it really does come down to a few marginal seats. So UK votes could very well contribute to the final result in certain seats. Every vote will count.’

The idea of people swinging votes for such important matters for a country they don’t live in is an interesting one, as a representative for the moving company, Interdean, explained, ‘The UK has such large numbers of Australians living and working here, in fact more than anywhere else in the world, it is no surprise that they could have such an influence on the election even though they are not permanent residents.’ The company has helped hundreds of thousands of Australians move to the UK for over fifty years offering moving services such as air freight, shipping, storage and excess baggage solutions.

The upcoming election is between current Prime Minister Julia Gillard, leader of the Labour party and opposition leader of the Liberal and National coalition party Tony Abbott. Gillard has led the country for two terms and is hot favourite to continue for this term. The federal election will be held on the 14th September 2013.
