SYDNEY (AFP) - The Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Saturday called a clear win for the Tony Abbott-led conservative opposition over Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's Labor in national polls.

"The coalition is on a pretty secure 74 seats already. On that basis they're going to get a majority. I think we can say the government has been defeated," the state broadcaster's election analyst Antony Green said.
