Hunt for Deputy Labor leader is at work, because Clair O & # 39; Neil and Richard Marles show interest in the role

Labor & # 39; s next guiding light: Race is on for Labor's deputy leader as candidates step forward – but there is a surprising turn

  • Jim Chalmers hovered as a potential candidate for the vacancy of the deputy laboratory technician
  • Clare O & # 39; Neil has also shown interest in the role in a tweet on Wednesday
  • Richard Marles has also shown to be open to the role and seems to be making an offer
  • Tanya Plibersek currently holds the position but is unlikely to retain this role

Anthony Albanese will be the new Labor leader, but the race to be his substitute is coming up.

Shadow finance minister Jim Chalmers withdrew from the competition to replace Bill Shorten on Thursday, thus paving the way for Mr. Albanese to fill the top course.

Mr. Chalmers said that he carefully considered working on a platform of generation change.

& # 39; But in the end I couldn't be sure that I would win, & # 39; Chalmers said in a statement on Thursday.

& # 39; And if I won, the extra responsibilities of leadership would make it much more difficult to make a contribution at home, while the youngest of our three small children is only five months old. & # 39;

Although Mr Chalmers withdraws from the leadership competition, he has been called up as a possible candidate for the position of deputy leader.

Tanya Plibersek is the current substitute and has held on to the position since 2013.

While Labor strives for a man and a woman in the leadership duo, a political turn means that Plibersek is unlikely to remain in the role.

The Labor leader often chooses a member who is loyal to the other party within the party to prevent mutual conflict.

As Mrs. Plibersek belongs to the left faction, she turned out to be the right fit during the occupation of Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, since he is a judge.

The new probable leader, Mr Albanese, comes from the left and is likely to set his sights on a member of the law who is keeping the vacant position for politicians such as Mr Chalmers.

Mr. Chalmers was treasurer from 2010 to 2013 and acted as chief of staff at Wayne Swan.

He has been a member of Rankin in Queensland since 2013 and said he will give his full support to Mr Albanese.

"I will enthusiastically support him and work tirelessly with our team to give Australians the Labor government they need and deserve on the next opportunity," Chalmers said on Thursday.

Victorian Labor right-faction MPs Richard Marles and Clare O & Neil both consider to be deputy leader.

O & # 39; Neil expressed her interest in the vacancy on Wednesday evening.

& # 39; Many workers, especially women in the job market, have contacted me in recent days to encourage me to go to the deputy leader of the job market to ensure that there is a woman in the leader / deputy & # 39 ,, tweeted Mrs. O & # 39; Neil.

& # 39; One of the best things about Labor is that women are encouraged to show themselves as leading roles and I know this will continue.

& # 39; I'm going to talk to a few colleagues about whether it's currently possible for me. & # 39;
