Gillard Rudd at Gillard with Lu In Kevin's second confrontation, Gillard won again.

On the morning of the 27th local time, the battle for the leadership of Australia's ruling Labour Party was settled: the current Prime Minister Gillard defeated the former Prime Minister and former Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd by a large margin, and was re-elected as the leader of the Labour Party, maintaining the position of Prime Minister.

This is the second time that Gillard has defeated Rudd after replacing Rudd as party leader and became prime minister in June last year, with a score of 71 to 31. This may be a temporary victory for Gillard and the beginning of a defeat for Labour.

Cabinet will be reshuffled

“This issue of leadership has now been settled,” Gillard said at a press conference after the vote.” We shook hands in the caucus room and had a very brief speech...I can assure you that the political drama is over and you (Australians) are back to center stage where you deserve to be."

Rudd reluctantly congratulated his opponent on "winning an absolute victory" at the press conference. "The caucus has decided, and I accept the outcome unconditionally and without complaint," he said. "I will devote myself fully to helping her (Gillard) be re-elected as Prime Minister of Australia."

Rudd also He said he had "no grudges" against those who had criticised him and he would remain as MP for his home region of Queensland. However, most analysts believe that it is no surprise that Rudd's position in the parliament will be adjusted from the front to the back, and he will become a backbencher.

Australian observers expect a quick reshuffle of Gillard's cabinet after the Labor leader's vote. After the results of the vote were announced, Gillard pointedly told the media that she thanked those colleagues who gave her "completely overwhelming endorsement" and took the opportunity to express her confidence in leading the Labour Party to win the 2013 general election.

Last week, Rudd resigned as foreign minister and expressed his desire to challenge Gillard's Labour Party leadership position. After Gillard announced the Labour Party leadership vote on the 27th, Gillard's cabinet began to stand in line and split. Cabinet ministers including Australia's Minister of Resources, Energy and Tourism Martin Ferroson, Minister of Industry and Research Kim Carr and Minister of Housing and Urban-Rural Development Robert McGland, and Minister of Immigration and Citizenship Chris Bowen have made public the Announced support for Rudd; while other cabinet ministers, including Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, Finance Minister Huang Yingxian, Agriculture Minister Ludwig, and Assistant Treasurer Mark Abib, expressed support for Gillard.

All eyes are now on how Gillard will shuffle his cabinet. Defence Secretary Stephen Smith is seen as the most likely to fill Rudd's vacancy as foreign minister. Gillard said she would soon make a statement on the matter in the next few days.

Labour faces a ruling crisis

Labour's internal divisions have become the arguments and levers for the opposition Liberal National Party coalition's attack on Gillard. Opposition leader Tony Abbott continues to question Gillard's leadership, saying a third of Labour and a quarter of parliamentarians have no confidence in her.

"I had a lot of disagreements with him (Rudd) in those years, but he was right to say last week that Gillard "lost the trust of the Australian people"," Mr Abbott said.

And when asked by the Liberal Party whether Rudd was the whistleblower of a deteriorating government, Gillard denied the accusation, retorting that the opposition continued to harass Labour. At the time of the entanglement, the government was still providing jobs for Australians, functioning normally.

Australia needs elections, and only elections can guarantee a strong and stable government, opposition parties say ahead of Labor's vote. The current Gillard government largely depends on the support of several independent MPs and the Green Party, which are considered very unreliable, and losing their support is likely to lead to an early election .

In recent months, Labour's polls have continued to risefell, even trailing the Opposition by about 10 percentage points in the latest polls. If there is an early election, the opposition is likely to defeat Gillard's Labour Party.

In 2007, Rudd won the general election by a landslide victory over the 11-and-a-half-year-old Liberal National Party coalition leader Howard, and had a high popular support rate during his tenure as prime minister. But with Mr Rudd's environmental and tax policies facing fierce opposition from the rest of the Labour Party, he was replaced by Gillard as Labour leader and then Prime Minister in 2010, and Rudd returned to the cabinet as foreign minister.

There is widespread speculation that the Gillard government's extremely low approval ratings are causing senior Labour MPs to gradually distrust it, thus promoting the Labour leadership game. Rudd said in a statement that he knew challenging Gillard's leadership would be difficult, but "the right thing to do".
