Anthony Albanese’s Personal Information
Anthony Norman Albanese is an Australian politician serving as the 31st and current prime minister of Australia since 2022.
He has been the leader of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) since 2019 and the member of parliament (MP) for Grayndler since 1996.
Albanese previously served as the 15th deputy prime minister under the second Rudd government in 2013; he held various ministerial positions in the governments of Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard from 2007 to 2013.
Albanese was born in Sydney to an Italian father and an Irish-Australian mother who raised him as a single parent.
He attended St Mary’s Cathedral College before going on to the University of Sydney to study economics.
He joined the Labor Party as a student, and before entering Parliament worked as a party official and research officer.
Albanese was elected to the House of Representatives in the 1996 election, winning the seat of Grayndler in New South Wales. He was first appointed to the shadow cabinet in 2001 by Simon Crean and went on to serve in several roles, eventually becoming Manager of Opposition Business in 2006.
After Labor’s victory in the 2007 election, Albanese was appointed Leader of the House and was also made Minister for Regional Development and Local Government and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport.
In the subsequent leadership tensions between Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard from 2010 to 2013, Albanese was publicly critical of the conduct of both, calling for party unity.
After supporting Rudd in the final leadership ballot between the two in June 2013, Albanese was elected the deputy leader of the Labor Party and sworn in as deputy prime minister the following day, a position he held for less than three months, as Labor was defeated at the 2013 election.
After Rudd resigned the leadership and retired from politics, Albanese stood against Bill Shorten in the ensuing leadership election, the first to include party members in addition to MPs.
Although Albanese won a large majority of the membership, Shorten won more heavily among Labor MPs and won the contest; Shorten subsequently appointed Albanese to his Shadow Cabinet. After Labor’s surprise defeat in the 2019 election, Shorten resigned as leader, with Albanese becoming the only person nominated in the leadership election to replace him; he was subsequently elected unopposed as leader of the Labor Party, becoming Leader of the Opposition.
In the 2022 election, Albanese led his party to a decisive victory against Scott Morrison’s Liberal-National Coalition.
Albanese is the first Italian-Australian to become prime minister, as well as the first Australian prime minister to have a non-Anglo-Celtic surname.
He was sworn in on 23 May 2022, alongside four senior frontbench colleagues.
Albanese’s first acts as prime minister included updating Australia’s climate targets to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, and supporting an increase to the national minimum wage.
Albanese was born on 2 March 1963 at St Margaret’s Hospital in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst. He is the son of Carlo Albanese and Maryanne Ellery.
His mother was an Australian of Irish descent, while his Italian father was from Barletta in Apulia. The Italian surname Albanese is about the Arbereshe people, ethnic Albanians indigenous to the part of southern Italy where Albanese’s father came from.
His parents met in March 1962 on a voyage from Sydney to Southampton, England, on the Sitmar Line’s TSS Fairsky, where his father worked as a steward, but did not continue their relationship afterward, going their separate ways.
Coincidentally, the Fairsky was also the ship on which Albanese’s future parliamentary colleague Julia Gillard and her family migrated to South Australia from the United Kingdom in 1966.
Growing up, Albanese was told that his father had died in a car accident; he did not meet his father, who was still alive, until 2009, tracking him down initially with the assistance of John Faulkner, Carnival Australia’s CEO Ann Sherry, and maritime historian Rob Henderson, and then later the Australian Embassy in Italy and ambassador Amanda Vanstone.
He subsequently discovered that he had two half-siblings.
During the Australian parliamentary eligibility crisis of 2017, it was noted that, although birth to an Italian father would ordinarily confer citizenship by descent, Albanese had no father recorded on his birth certificate and thus meets the parliamentary eligibility requirements of section 44 of the constitution.
Albanese’s maternal grandfather George Ellery ran a printing business on William Street in Darlinghurst. He provided printing services to the ALP. When Jeannette McHugh announced she would not recontest her seat of Grayndler at the 1996 election, Albanese won preselection for the seat.
The campaign was a difficult one, with aircraft noise a big political issue following the opening of the third runway at Sydney Airport, and the newly established No Aircraft Noise party (NAN) having polled strongly in the local area at the 1995 New South Wales election. Veteran political pundit Malcolm Mackerras predicted NAN would win the seat.
However, NAN’s candidate finished third, with less than 14% of the vote.
Despite suffering a six-point swing against Labor, Albanese was elected with a comfortable 16-point margin.
In his maiden speech to the House of Representatives, he spoke about the building of a third runway at Sydney Airport, aircraft noise, and the need to build a second airport to service Sydney, as well as his support for funding public infrastructure in general, multiculturalism, native title, the social wage, and childcare.
He concluded by saying, ‘For myself, I will be satisfied if I can be remembered as someone who will stand up for the interests of my electorate, for working-class people, for the labor movement, and our progressive advancement as a nation into the next century.’
In his first year in Parliament, he continued this theme, speaking in favor of the Northern Territory’s euthanasia legislation, the rights of the Indigenous community in the Hindmarsh Island bridge controversy, and entitlement to superannuation for same-sex couples.
This latter issue became a cause to which he was particularly dedicated.
In 1998 he unsuccessfully moved a private member’s bill that would have given same-sex couples the same rights to superannuation as de facto heterosexual couples.
Over the next nine years, he tried three more times without success, until the election of the Rudd Government in 2007 saw the legislation passed.
Albanese subsequently turned his attention to campaigning for same-sex marriage.
In 1998, Albanese was appointed a parliamentary secretary, a position that assists ministers and shadow ministers and is often a stepping stone to a full ministerial position. In 2001, he was promoted to the opposition Shadow Cabinet, taking the portfolio of aging and seniors.
A 2002 reshuffle saw him become Shadow Minister for Employment Services and Training, and in 2004 he became Shadow Minister for Environment and Heritage.
It was during this latter role that then prime minister John Howard and science minister Brendan Nelson started raising the idea of nuclear power for Australia.
Albanese campaigned strongly against them, as well as elements within his party, arguing that ‘Nuclear energy doesn’t add up economically, environmentally or socially, and after more than 50 years of debate, we still do not have an answer to nuclear proliferation or nuclear waste.’
In 2005, he was given the additional role of Shadow Minister for Water alongside his existing responsibilities and was also appointed Deputy Manager of Opposition Business in the House.
In December 2006, when Kevin Rudd first became Leader of the Labor Party, Albanese took over from Julia Gillard as Manager of Opposition Business in the House, a senior tactical role on the floor of the parliament, and was appointed Shadow Minister for Water and Infrastructure.
In June 2013, Rudd defeated Gillard in a final leadership election.
That same ballot saw Albanese elected by the caucus as Deputy Leader of the Labor Party, and the following day Albanese was sworn in as deputy prime minister.
He held this role until Labor’s defeat in the 2013 election and was replaced by Warren Truss on 18 September.
Labor was victorious over the incumbent Liberal-National Coalition at the federal election on 21 May 2022, with Albanese becoming the 31st prime minister of Australia.
Despite a fall in the party’s primary vote, Labor won several seats from the Coalition, helped by a particularly large swing to the party in Western Australia; the result was also assisted by several ‘teal independents’ winning seats from ‘moderate’ Liberal members.
Albanese is the first Italian-Australian prime minister in the country’s history.
Although it was not certain that Labor would win a majority, no other party could realistically form a government.
Accordingly, two days after the election, Albanese, deputy leader Richard Marles, former shadow treasurer Jim Chalmers, and senators Penny Wong and Katy Gallagher were sworn in as an interim five-person ministry.
According to Australia’s ABC News, the Governor-General, David Hurley, would not have sworn in Albanese without assurances that Labor could provide stable government, as well as legal advice that this was the proper course of action.
Albanese secured confidence and supply from the crossbench if he was unable to form a majority government.
However, on 30 May, it was projected that Labor had won at least 76 seats and could therefore claim majority government, forming a majority for the first time at the federal level since the 2007 election. Albanese’s full ministry was sworn in on 1 June.
Albanese has described his political views as progressive and is aligned with the Labor Left faction. Albanese is a republican and supports replacing Australia’s current constitutional monarchy.
In a debate to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, he told the Australian Parliament, ‘Even many Australians who do not hold with the principle of monarchy feel regard for her.
You can be a republican, as I am, and still have the deepest respect for the Queen. She has done her duty with fidelity, integrity, humanity, and, as she sometimes lets slip, a sly sense of humor.’
He has stated his desire to give constitutional recognition to Indigenous Australians and pledged to hold a referendum regarding an Indigenous Voice to Parliament upon becoming prime minister.
