Background: The leader of the Federal Opposition, Mr. Fraser, said today he was facing the most difficult decision of his political career on whether or not to force an early election. The leader of the Opposition was speaking in Canberra at a meeting of the Federal Council of the Liberal Party. The decision was, he said, between two heavy and conflicting principles. The first was that the Government with a majority in the Lower House should in the normal course of events run its full term. The second principle was the obligation of an Opposition to the people of Australia.
The federal Opposition leader, Mr. Fraser, says he faces a momentous decision on the election issue - and it must be taken soon.
