Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is right to reject a desperately self-interested idea:

Scott Morrison has shot down suggestions of holding two federal elections next year.

Fairfax Media reports this morning that the idea of a half-Senate election early next year followed by a House of Representatives election a few months later had been floated to give the government more time to build support against Bill Shorten…

“The government has no plans for a dual election. The election is due next year,” a spokesman for Mr Morrison said.

The last date for a simultaneous federal election is May 18 next year.

“No plans for” is not quite a “no way”, though.
