Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has called for a leadership vote this evening.
JULIA Gillard has called a caucus meeting for 4.30pm to allow a ballot for leadership positions, after Simon Crean’s dramatic appeal to her to end the party’s deadlock.
A defiant Prime Minister began question time with the announcement of a vote, then challenged the federal opposition: “Meanwhile, take your best shot.”
Regardless of the result the real winner will be the Liberal Party because voters don’t like parties which are unstable and lack unity.
That’s one of the problems both the Australian Labor Party and New Zealand Labour Party have in common.
