Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Tuesday said he intends to call national elections after the budget is delivered next month, with July 2 his expected date.Turnbull stopped short of confirming the date of the election, but said July 2 would be "a very good assumption".Just a few months later, Rudd lost elections to Abbott, who was then ousted by Turnbull last year.Under normal conditions, Australian elections are held every three years for the House of Representatives and half of the Senate.A double dissolution election can be called when key government legislation is blocked and sees the House and Representatives and the entire Senate dissolved.
