The economy is again in the spotlight, as both parties wait to hear if the bank will cut interest rates. All the day’s events, live

The latest Essential poll is out, as Sarah Martin reports:

Labor has maintained its election-winning lead over the Coalition as the election campaign enters its final fortnight, according to a new Guardian Essential poll.

The survey of 1,079 people shows Labor is leading the Coalition on a two-party preferred basis 52% to 48%, a slight lift within the poll’s margin of error compared to last week, when Labor was ahead 51% to 49%.

Bill Shorten will start the day in Melbourne, while Scott Morrison is in Sydney.

Both campaigns are expected to make their way to Canberra by tonight, before the third and final leaders’ debate at the National Press Club tomorrow.

Good outcome. And good on the team at @PressClubAust for making it happen.
