I am fairly new to Australian politic too. Yea it is sad on how caucus change what you vote. In 2007 you vote for Kevin, you got Julia. In 2010 you vote for Julia, you got Kevin.....too much headache going on here ;)
But as for the option now is left only for KR or TA, if I am an OZ citizen, i will still vote for liberal just for the sake of not having TA as my PM. If only liberal put Malcolm Turnbull instead of TA to represent the party to lead the country, then whichever party wins will be the least of my concern as KR and MT are great politicians (at least to my opinion)
Best wishes for OZ's next election ;)

she backed stabbed kevin rudd and became leader over night, how is this possible once you are a leader then surely it would have to take an election to change leaders
In Australia you vote for PM-s - representatives in House of Representatives and Senate. It is up to them to choose their own leader. Not the only country in the world that does it that way.

Change of leadership also occurs due to voting within the leading party. In this case Julia called ALP members to polls and they voted Kevin 56 - 45. This is not unusual for Australia to have these leadership challenges. Peter Costello used to challenge John Howard too except he never won.

I can't help but feel like Australians are just complaining whenever they mention this issue. And I say this as someone who was born Australian.

Australia's population is also ten times less.......think about it.

My source "within the detention centre" says quite the opposite.....
