Australia’s Center-Left Labor Party Wins Election Dominated by Inflation

SYDNEY — Australia’s centre-left opposition won a national election on Saturday after Prime Minister Scott Morrison conceded defeat, although late vote counting in some constituencies will determine the exact government structure.

Labor leader Anthony Albanese is poised to become prime minister and will be Australia’s first Labor leader since 2013, according to a tally from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Labor won at least 72 seats in the 151-seat House of Commons, where governments are formed, compared with at least 55 for the centre-right coalition led by Mr Morrison of the Liberal Party, the ABC said. Each side needs 76 seats to rule without an alliance with small parties or independent parties.
