The South Australian opposition has declared Saturday's election an opportunity to get the state's health system back on track as the government continued its attack on Labor's reckless spending promises.
Labor leader Peter Malinauskas and Premier Steven Marshall were back on the streets on Friday for a final pitch to voters.
The premier began with a pre-dawn visit to a cafe in his eastern suburbs electorate and then the Adelaide Central Market.
Despite trailing in opinion polls, Mr Marshall said he believed the government could win.
"The people of SA know that under a Liberal government you are always going to have a stronger economy, stronger finances and that is good for families," he told ABC radio.
Mr Marshall also renewed criticism of Labor's costing for its election pledges, claiming basic errors in what funds would be available to meet the opposition's $3 billion in promises.
"They have no credibility when it comes to the economy," the premier said.
Mr Malinauskas focused once again on health, gathering with hospital and ambulance staff.
"This election is a health election," he said.
"This election is an opportunity to get our health system back on track with a considered plan, a fully funded plan."
In its costings, Labor said it would use a combination of savings and uncommitted capital already in the SA budget to fund its election commitments.
It said it could save about $670 million over the next four years by imposing a 1.7 per cent efficiency dividend on government departments not delivering frontline services.
Agencies such as health, police, emergency services and education would be exempt from the savings measure.
It would also use about $1.5 billion in uncommitted capital reserves already in the state budget as well as bringing forward the $662 million the Liberal government planned to spend on a new Riverbank Arena in Adelaide.
Those funds would largely go to pay for Labor's $1 billion in health initiatives, including plans for hospital upgrades, more hospital beds and the recruitment of extra doctors, nurses and paramedics.
But the government said much of the claimed uncommitted capital had been already earmarked for transport and other infrastructure projects.
"They've made assumptions that there's a lazy couple of billion dollars sitting behind the treasury sofa that they can spend without any impact on the budget," retiring Treasurer Rob Lucas said.
