Kevin Rudd was the Australian Prime Minister in 2010. He was elected at the end of 2007, replacing John Howard, who was Australia's second longest serving Prime Minster up to that point. He was ousted as leader of the party and Prime Minister in June 2010, becoming the first Australian Prime Minister to be removed from office without having completed a full term. He returned as leader of the ALP in 2013 after a leadership challenge toppled his former challenger, Julia Gillard.

Kevin Rudd represents the Australian Labor Party.
