Labor Party rank & file to vote for new Federal Labor Party leader

For the first time, rank-&-file members of the Labor Party will vote for the Federal Parliamentary Labor Party leader. Often a pioneer amongst social democratic & labour parties, it's strange that Australian Labor is the last major centre-left party in an English-speaking Westminster democracy to embrace the direct election of the leader.

Bill Shorten & Anthony "Albo" Albanese are the two candidates.

It is rumored, however, that in case there's no clear winner, a compromise candidate, a member of the Middle Earth branch of the party, is ready to step forward to take the reins.
