Greg Sword Elected ALP President

Victorian union leader Greg Sword was elected unopposed as the new Federal ALP President at the party’s National Conference in Hobart this morning.

The conference also elected its National Executive for the next two years, sharing power between the left and right factions.

In factional jockeying in Victoria, shadow Health Minister Jenny Macklin was dropped from the executive, but will take up an honorary position as Vice-President of the ALP, a move seen by some as a prelude to electing her as the first female president in two year’s time.
