ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Stakes are high at by-election in Upper Hunter | 7.30” – below is their description.

The state seat of Upper Hunter in New South Wales is home to the nation’s coal mining heartland, and it’s never been held by any party other than the Nationals.

But that dominance has been receding over the past three elections, and as Andy Park reports, the stakes are high at this weekend by-election, triggered by a disgraced MP’s resignation, which threatens to force the Berejiklian Coalition to govern in minority.
