Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison visited the country's governor-general at his residence in the capital Canberra on Sunday, television networks showed, as local media said he was set to call an election for May 21, APA reports citing Reuters.

Governor-General David Hurley represents Britain's Queen Elizabeth and his authorization is necessary to dissolve parliament and order a general election.

Term limits mean the poll must be held before the end of May.
