Scott Morrison pledges to create 1.25m jobs if re-elected

Australia will have an extra 1.25 million jobs in five years and no government debt in a decade if the coalition remains in power, the prime minister has promised.

A Bill Shorten-led Labor government would produce a weaker economy, affecting funding for a plethora of services, Mr Morrison said.

In its best poll ratings since Turnbull's removal, the Coalition's primary vote went up two points to 37 per cent, meanwhile Labor dropped three points to 38 per cent. But it still trails Labor 47-53 on a 2PP basis.

The pledge is considered very similar to a pledge to create 1 million jobs over 5 years by former Prime Minister Tony Abbott before the start of the 2013 election.

Mr Morrison will today say the Government has credibility when it comes to creating jobs.

The Greens remained unchanged on 9 per cent of primary votes, with more support swinging behind other minor parties and independents.

'People getting in jobs.

"We no longer, for the first time this year and this budget, will have a deficit".

Morrison made the commitment in a speech in Brisbane on Tuesday, establishing the governing Liberal-National Party coalition (LNP)'s economic record as the key pillar of his election campaign.

The next stage of the Prime Minister's economic plan, which aims to "jolt voters from their apathy", focuses on the Government's achievements and plans. The Australian federal election is due to be held in May this year, so strap yourselves in for a few more months of politicians making promises, kissing babies and riding around in overtly branded coaches.

'This is not unusual. "Our goal as Australians should always be to make a contribution rather than take one", Mr Morrison will say in his speech.

"It's OK for Tim Hammond, a bloke from Western Australia, to say he is not going to stay one term of parliament, but for Kelly, who has served the parliament for nearly 10 years, for her to leave because of quite personal reasons, particularly relating to issues that I'm sure all Australians would want to wish her well, I just find frankly quite disappointing".

Mr Morrison will also restate his attack on Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, accusing him of planning to introduce $200 billion in new and higher taxes.
