All Leadership Eyes on Albanese

All eyes will be on Anthony Albanese’s leadership intentions when he visits Braddon today, Senator Eric Abetz said.

“Everyone knows that Mr Albanese is stalking the unpopular Mr Shorten”, Senator Abetz said.

“While Mr Albanese is here to supposedly campaign for Ms Keay, it isn’t lost on anyone that if Labor loses Braddon, it will be a major blow to Mr Shorten’s leadership.

“All the pressure is upon Mr Shorten - a government hasn’t won a seat off an opposition at a by-election since 1920.

“So the question Mr Albanese needs to answer today is: will he rule out a leadership challenge if Labor losses Braddon?”
