Lin Lihua, the Chinese Honorary Mayor of Auburn, Sydney, talks about the Western Sydney election in the federal election
Western Sydney, with a population of 150 million, is a must-see for this Australian federal election. This is one of Australia's most densely populated areas, mostly inhabited by low- and middle-income minority immigrants. In recent years, the ever-increasing cost of living has become one of the unbearable burdens of residents in this area. In order to win the support of the people in this large and lagging constituency, both the Coalition and the Labour Party launched a number of campaign pledges during the general election. Ms. Lin Lihua, the honorary mayor of Auburn, Sydney, introduced the general concerns of voters in Western Sydney and the current election situation in an interview with ABC reporter Li Weiguo.
