Howard Commits to Full Term

"If I'm returned and the government's returned at the coming election I will serve my full term at the member for Bennelong, the full three years, and I won't be inflicting a by-election on the people of my electorate," he told reporters in Sydney. Mr Howard spent this morning shoring up votes at Carlingford in his electorate which polling has shown to be on a knife-edge, thanks in part to the high profile Labor candidate Maxine McKew.


So that means Howard's going to serve a full term and step down, or lose and serve a full term on the back bench. Didn't he say he was going to hand over to Costello though? I wouldn't start buying any champagne if I were you, Peter.
