Tanya Plibersek Will Not Be Running For Labor Leader So There Goes That

Well folks, it’s been one hell of a weekend. Between the election and Bill Shorten stepping down as Labor leader, there’s been a lot of feelings.

But as our country’s middle-left-leaning party has lost both the election and it’s leader, the question on everyone’s lips has been “now what”. Plenty of people have been suggesting deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek as the successor to the throne. But she has just now announced that she will not be throwing her hat into the ring.

In a statement released by the deputy leader, Plibersek said that she could not “reconcile the important responsibilities” she has to her family with the toll and importance of a Labor leadership.

“I am grateful for the support I have received from my colleagues, from party members and others, urging me to run for the Labor leadership…

But now is not my time.”

She went on to say however, that she intends on remaining deputy leader until the leadership is settled. This all comes after earlier today, previous Labor leaders, Bill Shorten and Julia Gillard both put their support behind her.

So far, the only person to have officially put their hand up for the role seems to be Anthony Albanese. Could 2022 be Albo vs ScoMo?

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
