I made a prediction earlier this year that in the Australian election that Tony Abbott beat Julia Gillard. Julia Gillard is no longer the Australian prime minister after losing the leadership challenge battle within her own political party, the Australian Labor Party to Kevin Rudd. The battle actually happened on June 26, 2013. He was sworn by the Australian Governor General, Quentin Bryce on June 27, 2013. This is his second stint as the Prime Minister of Australia. As well, he is a local member of the Queensland seat of Griffith. The last day of sitting in Australian parliament on June 27, 2013. The Australian election was called earlier this year by Ms Gillard for September 14, 2013. Since Mr Rudd is the current Australian Prime Minister, he has yet to decide on a definite date for the Australian election. The only definite here for now is still this year. Tony Abbott is still the Opposition Leader of Australia. He is as well the leader of the Liberal Party. The current opposition consist of a Conservative coalition from the Liberal Party and the National Party. About the previous prime minister, Julia Gillard is now only a local member of parliament till the next Australian election. My revised prediction is now that Tony Abbott will be next Australian Prime Minister beating Kevin Rudd.
