Uniting the country may be a more difficult task than Anthony Albanese can imagine, Nine Political Editor Chris Uhlmann has said.

Speaking after a long election night, Uhlmann reflected on what the results said about the country.

“We are a hugely balkanised country now between the regions, the suburbs and the inner cities,” he said.

He pointed to the high performance of right-wing minor parties.

“I think some people in the Coalition will look at that 13 per cent One Nation vote and think that is the way they will want to go,” Uhlmann said.

“The media in this country is now usually balkanised and we seem to stand on each corner and we seem to stand on each corner and yell at each other.

“The hardest place to stand is somewhere in the centre. 

That is where Anthony Albanese needs to stand to be a government for all Australians.”
