Australia's new gov't vows to scrap carbon tax
Australian Prime Minister-elect Tony Abbott meets with Treasury Secretary Martin Parkinson, in Sydney Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013. A new government prepared to take control of Australia on Sunday, with policies to cut pledges in foreign aid and to wind back greenhouse gas reduction measures in an effort to balance the nation's books. Abbott's conservative Liberal party-led coalition won a crushing victory at elections Saturday against the center-left Labor Party, which had ruled for six years. (AP Photo/Saeed KHAN, Pool)
