Labor frontbencher Joel Fitzgibbon has expressed concern that the party could eventually split due to the growing divide between its traditional working-class and socially-progressive supporters. The shadow resources and agriculture minister has suggested that two separate Labor parties that are focused on cities and regional communities respectively could eventually govern in a coalition arrangement. Meanwhile, shadow treasurer Jim Chalmers will use a speech on 20 August to urge Labor to re-engage with traditional supporters who shunned the party at the 2019 federal election.
