Previous First Gillard
Successor Second Rudd

The Second Gillard Ministry (Labor) was the 67th ministry of the Government of Australia, led by Prime Minister Julia Gillard. It succeeded the First Gillard Ministry upon its swearing in by Governor-General Quentin Bryce on 14 September 2010 after the 2010 election.[1][2][3]

The members of the Ministry were announced on 11 September 2010. It included some major changes from the First Ministry, which had in essence been left over from the First Rudd Ministry which preceded it.[4][5]

A reconstitution of the Ministry took place on 14 December 2011, with several key portfolios changing hands and other portfolios being redefined.[6][7] Further changes were made on 5 March 2012 following the resignation of and unsuccessful leadership challenge by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Kevin Rudd. Gillard implemented a further major reshuffle on 25 March 2013 following an abortive challenge from Rudd and his supporters.[8]

On 26 June 2013, former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was once again elected Labor Party leader. Gillard resigned as Prime Minister with effect from 27 June 2013, and the Second Rudd Ministry was formed.[9]
