Tanya Plibersek rules out ever running for party leader
‘I’m absolutely determined to make sure Anthony Albanese becomes the prime minister of Australia and that he stays the prime minister of Australia for a good long time’, she told ABC radio.
‘What I wouldn’t want people to take from this is the idea that a career is politics is incompatible with family life’.
Ms Plibersek, who has three children, would have been deputy prime minister if Mr Shorten had won the last election.
As Labor prepares for a formal review, she would not point to any particular policies which contributed to the shock defeat. ‘The last thing that Australians want from Labor is navel gazing about the campaign’, she told ABC radio.

- The only way Albanese can become prime minister is if he remains as leader…
- ‘What I wouldn’t want people to take from this is the idea that a career is politics is incompatible with family life’ is a double negative & isn’t that the reason she gave for retiring as deputy leader?
- Plibersek would have been deputy prime minister if Shorten had won the last election. And if Shorten had been deposed for any reason, she would have been PM, so what changed?
- What is a ‘formal review’ if not ‘navel gazing’?
