Rudd defeats Beazley

Mr Rudd and new deputy leader Julia Gillard are promising a "new style" of leadership, with Mr Rudd expected to finalise a new front bench today. Mr Beazley returned to Perth following the ballot after receiving news of the death of his youngest brother David, and is expected to announce his retirement from politics in the near future.
