NZ Labour congratulates Kevin Rudd

The Labour Leader David Shearer has tonight offered his congratulations to Kevin Rudd, following his return to the leadership of the Australian Labor Party, and the Prime Ministership of Australia.

“Kevin Rudd has shown once again what a formidable figure he is in Australian politics. 

“Mr Rudd will face an election within a matter of months, and the New Zealand Labour Party wishes him every success in the coming campaign.  He is a proven campaigner and a real fighter and I know he will do the Labor Party proud.

“I also want to acknowledge the achievements and service of Julia Gillard. 

“In all my dealings with Julia Gillard I was impressed by her intellect and strength of character.  As Australia’s first female Prime Minister her place in history is assured,” says David Shearer.
