London, May 3 (ANI): Theresa Rein, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's wife, is playing an active part in the running of her husband's government.

She has been working with Australian Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities, Bill Shorten in drafting a uniform building code requiring new homes to adhere to certain standards for the disabled and aged.

Ms Rein - one of Australia's most successful self-made businesswomen - said she wanted to take on a more active role and use her influence and business skills to get some "real change" for the disabled.

The Daily Telegraph said her active participation in Rudd's administration is reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's similar role in the Clinton administration between 1992 and 2000. (ANI)
