Rudd reshuffle sees new mental health minister

Health Minister Tanya Plibersek kept her role in the reshuffle, expanding her portfolio to include medical research.

After Mr Rudd’s dramatic toppling of Julia Gillard last week, he almost immediately announced a new treasurer, Chris Bowen, and deputy party leader, Anthony Albanese, as well as Penny Wong as the party’s Senate leader.

Today Mr Rudd revealed his full cabinet, in which the former mental health minister, Mark Butler, has been promoted to the portfolios of climate change, environment, heritage and water.
