This website is in imminent danger of being shut down. It has been online since 1995, but the personal circumstances of the owner, Malcolm Farnsworth, are such that economies have to be made.

State Of The Parties – Queensland 2002

This table shows the composition of the Queensland Legislative Assembly over the past three elections.

The Goss Labor government was elected in 1989 and re-elected in 1992 and 1995. It was defeated in parliament in February 1996 and replaced by a Coalition government led by Rob Borbidge.

In 1998, Peter Beattie formed a minority Labor government following the election. He won a landslide re-election in 2001.
