“My fellow Australians, the decision that you have to make in this election is not just a choice between Labor and Liberal.
“It is a choice between shaping the future of being shaped by it. I know we have been through tough times, I know the sacrifices that so many of you have made. You have earned a better future, and on 21 of May, I am asking you to vote for that better future.
“Vote for universal healthcare through Medicare, vote for cheaper childcare and cheaper energy bills. Vote for secure jobs and higher wages, vote for strengthening our universities and tapes, vote for action on climate change, vote for dignity and respect for older Australians, vote for an Australia that makes things here and stand in our own two feet
“Vote for an Australia that is confident and respected in the world. Vote for a country that celebrates our success as a multicultural nation. Vote for an Australia that recognises the great privilege of sharing our vast continent with the oldest continuous culture on earth.
“Vote for an Australia that believes the doors of opportunity should be open to all, no matter where you live, who you pray to, or who you love.
“Vote for hope and optimism, not fear and division. Vote Labor, so together we can build a better future, a better future for all Australians.”
