Shorten wins ALP leadership

Bill Shorten has been elected Leader of the ALP. He got 64% of the caucus vote and 40% of the members’ vote which have a 50/50 weighting.

30,500 members voted out of around 40,000 members (which is a very small number for their population).

This is a victory for the unions and the Labor Right who were backing Shorten. Will be interesting to see his Shadow Cabinet.
