australian head of government gillard survives a fightback vote

In the battle for the party and government leadership, australian prime minister julia gillard on monday won a commanding victory over her rival and incumbent kevin rudd.

In a vote in the labor caucus in canberra parliament, the first woman to lead the australian government distanced her challenger by 71 votes to 31. Conservative opposition leader tony abbott called for new elections after the power tussle.

"The political drama is over. Now we are concentrating on 2013," said gillard (50). Then the elections will take place, in which the labor party had no chance of winning according to current polls. She’s down to 35 percent approval, 10 percentage points less than the opposition. Gillard leads a minority government and keeps her head above water in parliament only with the votes of greens and independents. "I think today was not so much a new start as a stay of execution," said abbott.

Red bull claim for gasly after monza victory?

Red bull claim for gasly after monza victory?

"It’s not a consideration at the moment," said red-bull motorsport advisor helmut marko about a call for the frenchman from sister team alpha tauri. "Gasly is one of the red-bull drivers, he is currently at alpha tauri, doing a super job there. But we need a team leader there, too," the austrian explained after the 24-year-old’s grand prix victory on sunday in monza.

Gasly comes from the red-bull offspring. In the fall of 2017, he replaced russian daniil kwjat at toro rosso, which is now called alpha tauri, and was even asked to join the stronger sister team red bull for the 2019 season. After disappointing results he was exchanged for alex albon in summer 2019 and had to return to the smaller racing team.

"I think i’m ready," gasly said after his first formula one win when asked if he was confident of a 2021 return to the stronger red-bull team. "But it’s not up to me to decide that."Gasly is the first french grand prix winner since olivier panis in monaco in 1996.
