The MP for Sydney electorate Grayndler has gained widespread support from Labor MPs with Senator Penny Wong stating earlier this week that she believes Albanese is the "best person to lead us" and "the best person to take up the fight to Scott Morrison and the Coalition". I'm being encouraged to nominate for leader & I'll now consider my options overnight.

"But in the end I couldn't be assured of winning", he said in a statement on Thursday.

"From my point of view the Labor Party needs to look carefully at the lessons from Saturday".

"But it's also clear to me - I'm a realist - that Albo would win the rank and file for good reason".

"Many Labor people-particularly Labor women-have contacted me in recent days encouraging me to run for Labor deputy leader to ensure there is a woman in the leader/deputy team", O'Neil tweeted.

Albanese is expected to unify the Labor party on the basis of a "blue collar" focus with sharper messages about jobs and the economy.

Speaking to News Corp Australia on Thursday, Albanese promised that under his leadership the party would return to a pro-growth economic policy and drop its anti-business rhetoric.

"I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their support".

Shadow treasurer Chris Bowen pulled out of the race on Wednesday, a day after declaring his candidacy, having realised Mr Albanese had strong grassroots support.

Nominations for Labor leadership will close on Monday, but Mr Chalmers' withdrawal makes the prospect of a contested ballot highly unlikely.
