Labor leader Anthony Albanese will use a speech to the National Press Club on 8 November to respond to Craig Emerson and Jay Weatherill’s post-election review of the party. Albanese is expected to endorse all 26 of their recommendations, while the review listed 60 ‘findings’. Emerson and Weatherill stated Labor’s inability to adapt its strategy to tackle Scott Morrison and a "cluttered policy agenda that looked risky" were key factors behind what was its third successive federal election defeat. They said Labor should not abandon its commitment to social justice, but that it should avoid becoming a "grievance-focused organisation".
