Shorten Stands

September 12, 2013 by  

Shorten Stands, BILL Shorten has publicly declared his candidacy for the Labor leadership as his supporters gear up for a ballot against Anthony Albanese under controversial new party rules that could mean a 30-day delay in selecting the new opposition leader.

Mr Shorten, the outgoing education and workplace relations minister, said he had the passion and commitment for the job and insisted that Labor could win the next election.

He signalled that Labor, under his leadership, would not back away from carbon pricing, despite Tony Abbott claiming a mandate to repeal the carbon tax, and would defend the National Broadband Network and key policies such as school funding reform and the national disability insurance scheme. “I want to lead the rebuilding of our movement and to take the fight up to the Coalition in Australian politics,” he said.
