AS RUMOURS of a battle for the leadership of the country continue to swirl, Capricornia MP Kirsten Livermore has assured she has and will continue to be one of Prime Minister Julia Gillard's strongest supporters.

"The prime minister is an old friend of mine, and that won't change," Ms Livermore said.

A spokesman for Ms Livermore watered down widespread reports of disunity within Labor ranks and rumours of burgeoning support for Kevin Rudd to replace Ms Gillard.

Ms Livermore's spokesman said the Member for Capricornia did not believe the reports of disunity within Labor's ranks would affect Labor's chances at the September federal election.
