Australia to get a new Prime Minister? (Update: Gillard makes her move)

The ABC reports on a Labor Party revolt:

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's leadership is under siege tonight from some of the Labor Party's most influential factional warlords.

The ABC has learned that powerful party figures have been secretly canvassing numbers for a move to dump the Prime Minister and replace him with his deputy, Julia Gillard.

Stay tuned.

The latest: "He is gone."

The Prime Ministership will be decided at a leadership vote at 9:00am tomorrow morning. Even if Rudd survives the vote he'll be gone before the coming election.
