Chester: Rudd PM ‘no difference’

FEDERAL Labor’s Wednesday night leadership spill ousting Prime Minister Julia Gillard for a return to Kevin Rudd still has Gippsland MHR Darren Chester not taking anything for granted.

While Mr Chester doesn’t believe the change of leadership will cure the Labor party of its problems, least of all its in-fighting, he does not see the coming election, at this stage still slated for September 14, as a straight-out win for the coalition.

Newly announced Gippsland Labor candidate Jeff McNeill was not concerned about the change of leadership either, indicating that it was expected.
