Kevin Rudd: New Leadership for Australia

Australia's newly elected Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, states that industrial relations and ratification of the Kyoto Protocol (an international agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions) will be his first priorities. "Rudd's decision to ratify Kyoto leaves the United States the only industrialized country not to have signed the pact." In addition to these priorities, Rudd has promised to pull Australia's 550 combat troops from Iraq in a phased withdrawal.
