Kim Beazley Loses ALP Leadership Contest To Kevin Rudd

This is the audio of Kim Beazley’s press conference, following his defeat by Kevin Rudd in a caucus ballot for the ALP leadership.

Beazley first became leader of the ALP in 1996, following the defeat of the Keating government. He narrowly failed to win the 1998 election and was again defeated by John Howard in 2001, after which he relinquished the leadership to Simon Crean.

Beazley returned to the leadership in January 2005, following the resignation of Mark Latham.
