Australian Prime Minister survives to fight another day after no fellow Labor party members step forward to challenger her.

It all started at a parliamentary session on Thursday-- after getting pressure from fellow Labor party members to step down as prime minister, Gillard called for a leadership vote.

The vote came and went. But the man expected to challenge her, former Australian prime minster Kevin Rudd, said he was in fact NOT going to challenge Gillard. He didn't have enough support.

Gillard replaced Rudd in a party coup in 2010 in a move that angered voters who have never forgiven her for the way she became leader.

After retaining her position, she thanked fellow party members.
