Australia PM in post-poll talks with independents

CANBERRA (BestGrowthStock) – Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard said on Sunday she had held preliminary talks with independent lawmakers about forming a minority government after Saturday’s inconclusive election, but no deals had been reached.

Gillard said her ruling Labor Party had won the biggest block of votes in Saturday’s cliffhanger elections, and Labor provided the best prospect for stable government after the elections.
