Gillard on top, if you ask us

Welsh born Australian leader, Julia Gillard

July 26 – As part of electiondebates team, a collection of debate judges from all over the world, we analysed the Australian Leaders debate which was on Australian TV. Thanks to Astro I was able to judge the debate, albeit delayed, as we get Australia network.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard (Labor) faced Opposition Leader Tony Abbott (Lib-National), which we on the panel overwhelming gave the one-hour debate to Gillard.

The summary of our analysis was put up in the ABC news site.

But what was interesting was that both Gillard and Abbott were not born in Australia, but both are not marked out for that fact. It must seem they have more focus on the ability of an individual than the birth details of a person.

Something in Malaysia is still an aberration.
