Financial and Forex Info News | The Australian Capital Circle: Gillard to win but Labor bleeds



Gillard to win but Labor bleeds
 
Julia Gillard is set to win today's leadership ballot but there are already predictions the turbulence isn't over.

First off: While the Prime Minister has demanded party unity and end to destabilisation after today's ballot, Kevin Rudd has flagged fears Ms Gillard's supporters will continue a campaign of "character assassination" against him (report). Today's Newspoll has delivered Labor MPs a mixed message. The party has enjoyed a two-party-preferred boost, though it still trails 47-53. Ms Gillard still trails Tony Abbott as better prime minister, 38 per cent to 36 per cent. And Mr Rudd is preferred to Ms Gillard as Labor leader by 53 per cent to 28 per cent of voters (report ). (Newspoll table). (Analysis).
How it works: Today's special caucus meeting will settle the Labor leadership - for now. Soon after 10am, the Prime Minister will stand up and declare her position vacant to colleagues. MP Chris Hayes, the returning officer, will then call for self-nominations and conduct the ballot. Mr Rudd will make a statement to MPs and then ballots will then be distributed to 102 Labor MPs - new mum Michelle Rowland will be absent.  When counting is complete, the report of the result will be adopted by the caucus. Both Ms Gillard and Mr Rudd will again address MPs, while Mr Hayes will tell the waiting press - and the world - the result of the ballot.
Ms Gillard will hold a press meeting conference after the ballot today, as will Mr Rudd. The pair, along with other Labor MPs, will attend Question Time just after 2pm. Labor strategists are already anticipating a Coalition no-confidence motion.
