Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has defeated Kevin Rudd in the Labour Party leadership ballot.
Gillard, who ousted Rudd as Prime Minister in June 2010, won 71 votes to his 31.
She called the ballot after weeks of speculation that Rudd was going to challenge her for the top job.
Speaking to reporters after the results were announced, Gillard thanked her colleagues for their support and stressed that she was confident of leading the Labour Party to a win at the next election in 2013.
