Julia Gillard’s plan to reform ALP from the grassroots | The Australian.

JULIA Gillard will today attack the dominance of Labor’s factions by proposing to broaden the party’s base through online memberships and trialling US-style primaries to choose candidates.

The Prime Minister will also ask party officials to recruit 8000 members a year – double the current rate – and adopt issue-based campaigning in the style of activist group GetUp! to reconnect with the community.

In a speech to be delivered in Sydney today, Ms Gillard will argue that her party must expand and return influence to its grassroots, shedding its traditional faction-based structures to become more relevant to the everyday concerns of average Australians.
