WHERE THE LEADERS ARE CAMPAIGNING

WHAT THE COALITION WANTS TO TALK ABOUT

* The Australian economy remains strong compared to other advanced economies and now is not the time to risk uncertainty with Labor.

WHAT LABOR WANTS TO TALK ABOUT

WHAT IS MAKING NEWS

* Labor is officially launching its election campaign in Perth.

* Labor has promised to set up a royal commission into the unlawful Robodebt scheme.

* Scott Morrison says Australians will save $10 per script via a $150 million cash splash on medications covered by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.

* The Greens will preference Labor on its how-to-vote cards ahead of the coalition.

THEY SAID WHAT?

"You know what our plan is ... now is not the time to take a risk on what you don't know."

- Scott Morrison criticises Labor for not having an economic plan.

"We've got the quality, there's one thing we're missing. Quantity. We want more Labor seats in WA."

- Anthony Albanese says Labor will not take WA for granted as he seeks to pick up three seats in Perth.
