It’s back to the western suburbs of Sydney for Tony Abbott when he faces a Q&A forum at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, near Liverpool.

ABC says the audience members will come from the the nearby seats of Hughes and Macarthur where, along with Queensland, the Federal Election may be decided.

Opposition leader Tony Abbott will join host Tony Jones, which follows Prime Minister Julia Gillard before a Q&A audience this week in Adelaide.
