Labor to form government in South Australia

Premier Jay Weatherill announces the independent MP Geoff Brock has given his support and will receive a ministry

Jay Weatherill, the Labor premier, will return to government in South Australia with the support of Geoff Brock, an independent MP.


Labor will return to government in South Australia with the support of Geoff Brock, an independent MP.

Jay Weatherill, the incumbent premier, announced Brock had agreed to support to a minority Labor government and would receive a ministry. The announcement comes a week after a state election left Labor with 23 seats and the conservatives with 22, leaving two independents holding the keys to government.

Weatherill said:

Given the result of the state election last week, pressure has been brought to bear on the independents to make a decision who should form the government.
Mr Brock has chosen the Labor minority government here in South Australia.

Brock told reporters in Adelaide he had accepted the position of regional development minister in Weatherill's cabinet, as well as responsibility for state and local government relations.

These portfolios will allow me to provide a voice for regional South Australia, Brock said.

Bob Such, an independent who held the balance of power with Brock after the election, is understood to be taking extended sick leave.
