Prime Minister promises no new taxes if Coalition is re-elected
Posted On April 23, 2022
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has vowed there will be no new taxes if the Coalition is re-elected.
Mr Morrison will make an iron-clad guarantee today the Coalition government won’t introduce or raise any new taxes and will deliver $100 billion worth of tax relief over the next four years.
Much of that will go to high-income earners.
The Prime Minister will use this as an attempt to wedge Labor on the economy but the Opposition has ruled out tax increases except on multinationals.
Mr Morrison attended a late-night Easter mass at a Greek Orthodox parish in Sydney last night.
He is heading to a mystery destination today ahead of Anzac Day.
Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese remains stuck at home in isolation due to COVID-19.
Yesterday his deputy leader Richard Marles struggled to answer questions about the impact of Labor’s climate change policy, before he asked the shadow treasurer to step in.
So there could be some pressure on the party to clarify its position today.
