Prime Minister Julia Gillard has visited Australia's governor general in a procedural step toward calling general elections to be held in late August.
Gillard was seen Saturday driving through the gates of the official residence of Governor-General Quentin Bryce, who is responsible for authorizing the election on the date the prime minister chooses.
That date is expected to be either Aug. 21 or Aug. 28.
Gillard's office would not comment before she made an announcement at a press conference later Saturday.
