Prime Minister and leader of the Labor Party, Julia Gillard, will sack Kevin Rudd as Foreign Minister if she wins a leadership spill next Tuesday.
Gillard supporters say they have the numbers for the leadership challenge.
Those backing Rudd say there are ''more than 30'' who will support him as leader, however, this is not enough.
Nevertheless, how Gillard could go to an election with that many believing she should no be leader, will be untenable.
The Federal leadership wrangles will have a negative effect on Queensland Labor's chances.
