Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has told the media to "just chill", saying there will be "no avalanche" of policy decisions.

Mr Rudd had previously been criticised for failing to consult on decisions.

He was speaking at his first news conference, two days after he ousted Julia Gillard as Labor Party leader.

Mr Rudd was sworn in as PM on Thursday, three years after he was forced out by Ms Gillard.

He said: "One of the things I have learnt is the absolute importance of proper orderly consultation with cabinet colleagues on any major decision of the government."
