An anonymous reader writes Julia Gillard has been elected unopposed to the Labor leadership, seizing power in a bloodless Parliament House coup after Prime Minister Kevin Rudd decided not to contest this morning’s leadership ballot. Ms. Gillard will now be sworn in as Australia’s first female prime minister. Emerging from this morning’s meeting, she said she felt ‘very honored’ and said she would be making a statement shortly. Treasurer Wayne Swan now steps up as deputy prime minister. He was also elected unopposed.”
