Australians aim to score a victory in election campaign

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2007) - ALP Abroad, the Australian Labor Party international supporter network, will be at this Saturdays (17th November) international soccer match between Australia and Nigeria.

Supporters of Australian Labor Party will be handing out leaflets to Australian soccer fans urging them to cast their votes for the Australian Labor Party in what is a critical election where the key issue will be fairness at work.

ALP Abroad President, Paul Smith, said:
"A Labor government under Kevin Rudd will scrap Mr Howard's unfair workchoices laws and restore fairness and balance to the workplace.
"It is important that Australians living in the UK use their vote to ensure we have a government to be proud of when overseas and one that ensures fairness and opportunity when we return."

Voting, for Australians who live in the UK, in the Australian general election began on Tuesday 13th November and ends on the 23rd November.

Paul Smith added:
"If Australians in London want to help with the campaign by handing out leaflets etc. then contact our Campaign Co-Ordinator at londoncampaign07@alpabroad.net."
