The 2019 Worker's Party leadership election is the second election in the Worker's Party of Baustralia. The candidates are the sitting Oliver Doig and the MP for McNevin, Aidan McGrath, who, as before, contests to Doig's leadership as McGrath was the original leader before being removed and replaced into Parliament. John I dropped the writs of election on 28 August 2019.

The member's vote, a vote amongst the members of the Worker's Party, proved successful for McGrath with two votes, including his own, and failed for Doig with one vote, which is his own. The tie-breaking vote, sumbitted by Leon Montan was done within minutes of the writ dropping.

Candidate Yeas Noes
Aidan McGrath 2 1
Oliver Doig 1 2

The MP's vote is scheduled to take place on 1 September, and will be the deciding factor on who will become the leader for the rest of the parliamentary session.
