Day of truth for Abbott and Gillard

Michelle Grattan and Katharine Murphy

TONY Abbott has secured a last-minute pledge from a maverick West Australian National MP to support a minority Coalition government, clearing the way for an announcement on who will be Australia's next prime minister.
More than two weeks after the election that produced the first hung Parliament in 70 years, the three country independent MPs who now hold the key to power are expected to reveal today who they will back.

So finally we are here, the independents will today confirm who they will anoint to lead Australia for what is meant to be the next three years, I however trust that this will neither be stable or long surviving. My prediction is that they will choose Labor and the alliance will fall over in less than a year.
Stay turned for updates as they happen.
