  •  September 14 is the assumption (0+ / 0-)

    The election has to be before November 30, but Gillard announced it would be September 14 in January, albeit not formally.

    There's a mandated campaign period, of approximately one month. So even if the writs of election were dropped, the election couldn't be earlier than the end of July.

    There's been some campaigning focused on the September 14th date (Tony Abbott and the Coalition did a '100 days left' event in late May) and both parties seem to accept it, so it's hard to see the date changing.
