Julia Gillard New Prime Minister in Australia

Labor Party leader and Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd has stepped down from his post as doubts about his leadership began to emerge. Out of the fracas comes Australia's first woman to serve as Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.

The spill came after a newspaper report claiming Mr Rudd had instructed his chief of staff Alister Jordan to ring around the caucus to see whether MPs were still behind him.

Ms Gillard was reportedly furious at Mr Rudd's actions and is believed to have told her colleagues that Mr Jordan's sounding out of MPs was disrespectful and disloyal.

This comes as Labor was set to lose an election later this year.
