On 14th November, 1991 the Treasurer, Paul Keating, to a background of increasing national concern over the rate of unemployment, made an unsuccessful attempt for the leadership of the Labor party against Prime Minister, Bob Hawke. Keating was immediately demoted to the back bench. He challenged again, and succeeded on December 20th, 1991.
