News Corp pioneer Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter on Thursday to express his concerns for the “almost ungovernable” Australia. According to Murdoch, the stalemate in the Senate can be solved by a snap election.

The media mogul has expressed his support for Prime Minister Tony Abbott by stating that he is “by far the best alternative” for the premier of the country and it is likely that he would be voted back for the next term as well. “In spite of some blind spots, Abbott [is by] far the best alternative. Principled and a fighter,” he wrote on Twitter.

He also said that the corrupt Labor and the extreme Greens have contributed significantly to make the climate in Australia almost ungovernable. Murdoch seems to be concerned about the growing support the Greens are attracting. A latest poll conducted by the Fairfax/Ipsos shows a 16 percent increase in the number of supporters than in the last election. The balance of power in the hands of the small parties in Senate is the concerning part, according to Murdoch.

“Country almost ungovernable with any Senate majority impossible for either side to execute,” Murdoch wrote. He continued, “Only hope is new poll with government of all the talents ready to work together with clear mandate for reform, bringing in new, young able people.”

Murdoch was in Australia for a month recently. During his stay, he made visits to several offices under his banner. On Thursday night, Murdoch decided to take to the social media site to speak out his concerns on the direction Australia is heading.

Not everyone agrees with Murdoch’s opinion. “People have stopped listening to the rubbish you peddle. We love this country you deserted it,” wrote Independent federal politician Tony Windsor.

“It must be another Rupert Murdoch who told us the Iraq War would bring peace and democracy to the Middle East and oil at $20 a barrel,” Former Sydney Morning Herald columnist Mike Carlton wrote on his social media account page.
