News bulletin in Arabic for the day

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten have faced each other in the final debate of the election campaign. 

Debating at the National Press Club in Canberra, Mr Morrison and Mr Shorten have clashed again on the cost of Mr Shorten's proposed policies on combating climate change, franking credits, and health care. 

Mr Shorten says the costings of his party's policies will be released on Friday. 

Mr Morrison has had to fend off questions about the Liberal party leadership instability that has led to him fighting this election as Prime Minister. 

Mr Morrison says he is not beholden to the more right-wing elements in his party room and his party colleagues are widely supportive of him.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten says he will make Australia fairer and more equal if he's prime minister. 

Mr Shorten has closed his final head-to-head debate of the election campaign with Scott Morrison by saying a fairer and more equal Australia will also be a more prosperous one.
