JULIA Gillard has accepted the role of Australia's first female prime minister with the "greatest humility and enthusiasm".

Ms Gillard said she was "truly honoured" to become prime minister after Mr Rudd stood aside. She was 

She acknowledged that she had not been elected to the post by the public.

"In coming months, I will ask the Governor-General to call a general election," she said.

Ms Gillard paid tribute to her predecessor.

"I particularly give credit to Kevin Rudd for leading the nation in such difficult times and keeping people in work," she said.

Mr Rudd sat at the back of the chamber as Ms Gillard addressed Question Time in Parliament this afternoon for the first time as Prime Minister.

The Welsh-born Ms Gillard grew up in South Australia.

There, she said, her parents taught her the value of hard work, respect and doing your bit for the community.

"It is these values that will guide me as Australia's prime minister."

Reason for spill

Ms Gillard said she had asked her colleagues to make a leadership change "because I believed that a good government was losing its way".

She said she took her fair share of responsibility for the Rudd government's record including the errors.

"I know the Rudd government did not do all it said it would do and at times it went off track," she said.

Mining tax


Ms Gillard has cancelled the taxpayer-funded advertising campaign promoting the Government's proposed resource super profits tax.

She said negotiations with the mining industry would be led by her new deputy Wayne Swan and Resources Minister Martin Ferguson.

She also asked the mining industry to cancel its advertising as a sign of good faith in future negotiations over the tax.

Climate change

Turning to Labor's failed attempt to introduce an emissions trading scheme, Ms Gillard said she was disappointed that Australia didn't have a price on carbon.

"In the future we will need one," she said.

"But first we will need to establish a community consensus for action.

"If elected as prime minister (at the next election), I will re-prosecute the case for a carbon price at home and abroad."

Rudd devastated

Earlier, Mr Rudd was close to tears and his voice wavered as he listed his achievements in office during a press conference.

He repeatedly said he  was "proud" of abolishing WorkChoices and his record on health, education and at shielding Australia from the worst of the global financial crisis.

"I did my best to give Australia a fair go," he said.

Mr Rudd will be dedicating his efforts towards Labor remaining in power at the coming federal election.

"I will serve the Government in any manner I can, and I will be recontesting the next election in the seat of Griffith," he said.

Abbott 'disillusioned'

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott said Federal Labor might have changed its leader but its policies remain the same.

If the Australian public wanted to see new policies, they would have to vote the Coalition into power, he said.

"They've changed the salesman but they haven't changed the product," he said in Canberra of Julia Gillard's elevation to Prime Minister.

Ms Gillard would continue her predecessor's work, Mr Abbott said.

"She is committed to the same policies, the same dud policies, that Kevin Rudd has been committed to," he said.

State support

New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally congratulated Ms Gillard via Twitter.
 
"Congratulations to Julia Gillard, Australia's 1st female Prime Minister. A passionate advocate for families. Look fwd to working with her.
 
"[I] acknowledge and thank Kevin Rudd for his leadership, especially on health and hospital reform & national apology to the Stolen Generation."

Victorian Premier John Brumby said Ms Gillard  had a "wonderful way" with people.

Mr Brumby, who has had a rocky relationship with outgoing PM Kevin Rudd, told Sky News the leadership upheaval had been a "history-making 24 hours".

"But the reality now is we have a new prime minister and she's someone who I believe will make a fantastic prime minister," he said.

"I know her well, she's a person of extraordinary ability, of great intellect, of great compassion, she's got a wonderful way with people."

Swift defeat

In a historic decision, Labor MPs decided to oust Mr Rudd who will go down in history as the first prime minister ever to be turfed out by his party within his first term of winning power.

The leadership handover occurred without a ballot after Mr Rudd decided not to force his supporters into declaring their support.

Ms Gillard's victory was assured last night after most of the Rudd government ministers, including Mr Swan, decided to end his run as the Labor leader.

A confident Ms Gillard, flanked by the Treasurer who will become her deputy, walked into the Caucus meeting, certain they had the numbers to defeat Mr Rudd. Senior factional leaders claimed Ms Gillard had at least 70 votes from a Caucus of 112.

At 9.36am (AEST), Caucus spokesman and New South Wales Senator Michael Forshaw emerged to declare Ms Gillard would become Australia's next Prime Minister.

Mr Rudd - who won power in 2007 with a popular Kevin 07 campaign - stood aside after he lost the backing of key factional brokers and powerful unions including the Australian Workers Union after ALP powerbrokers formed the view that the Government was heading for defeat unless it changed leaders.

His defeat represents the most stunning political turnaround imaginable, for a leader who just a few months ago was rivalling Bob Hawke in the popularity stakes.

Ms Gillard will be Australia's 27th Prime Minister.

today.

"Can I say Australians one and all, it's with the greatest, humility, resolve and enthusiasm that I sought the endorsement of my colleagues to be the Labor leader and to be the prime minister for this country," she said.

"I have accepted that endorsement."
