Rudd's 100-day agenda

Post by shammy on Mon Nov 26, 2007 9:32 am


The Prime Minister-elect, in fine fettle as world leaders telephone him, plans to ratify Kyoto and hand-pick his ministry, writes Misha Schubert.

KEVIN Rudd is planning official visits to both the United States and Indonesia early next year, and has taken the first steps towards ratifying Kyoto and laying out his agenda for the first 100 days in office.

Savouring his thumping election victory, the Prime Minister-elect took congratulatory calls from US President George Bush, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, vowing to work with them all on global projects.

He also signalled plans to spend several days finalising his ministry, noting the influx of new Labor MPs elected on Saturday — including several heavyweights who could easily slip straight onto the frontbench.

A meeting of Labor MPs has been scheduled for Thursday, but Mr Rudd reaffirmed that he would select the front bench himself, without seeking the endorsement of the caucus.

"My position in terms of selecting the ministry has not changed: I will be selecting the ministry," he said.

Thanking the Australian people again for handing him the office of prime minister, Mr Rudd vowed not to disappoint them in his news conference that lasted just 13 minutes.

"This is a humbling experience to be extended the trust and confidence of people right across the country. I recognise full well that so many people will have voted for us for the first time and I would say to all those people that we will not breach that trust," he said.
