Prime Minister Scott Morrison's re-election prospects got a lift on Saturday when Australia's most populous state, New South Wales (NSW), returned his ruling Liberal Party to power.

The NSW election, less than two months before a federal poll, was seen as a test case of Morrison's strategy to seek re-election on the back of his government's economic record.

Morrison's government is, however, well behind the main opposition Labor party in the most recent polls, trailing by 54 percent to 46 percent on a two-party preferred basis.

While the Australian economy is the envy of many, NSW's finances are in even better shape. Unemployment in NSW is at a near record low, below even the national level which on Thursday was pegged at 4.9 percent.

Morrison will now hope to capitalise on the victory when his government delivers its final budget ahead of the election.

The conservative government has promised to deliver the country's first budget surplus in a decade and armed with a hefty war chest, Morrison is likely to also promise tax cuts.
