Jan 31, 2013 (The Australian Financial Review - ABIX via COMTEX) --
Prime Minister Julia Gillard told independent MP Tony Windsor the date of the 14 September 2013 federal election before she made the announcement at the National Press Club. Windsor says the date meets Gillard's pledge to have the Government serve a full three-year term in return for his support. He remains focused on unresolved issues such as the national broadband network and clean energy projects, despite facing a fight to retain his New England seat.
