Australian PM facing political jigsaw to govern

By Jane Wardell SYDNEY (Reuters) – As Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull inched closer on Friday to retaining power, attention turned to the political jigsaw he will need to navigate to pursue flagship policies including a A$50 billion ($37.6 billion) corporate tax break. The country's cliffhanger election is likely to give its leader a minority, or slim majority, Liberal-National coalition government, a hostile senate and sniping from within his own center-right Liberal Party. Turnbull flew south on Friday to woo a second independent candidate in a bid to cobble a government together as counting from Saturday's poll headed into a sixth day.
