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. Server costs and suchlike have become prohibitive. At the urging of people online, I have agreed to see if Patreon provides a solution. More information is available at the Patreon website.

Bracks Labor Government Ministry

The Bracks Labor Government in Victoria was sworn in on Wednesday October 20, 1999.

This followed the decision by the 3 independents in the Legislative Assembly (Russell Savage, Craig Ingram & Susan Davies) to give their support to the formation of a minority Labor government.

The average age of the Government is 44.3 years. There are 8 women (44%) in the Ministry, more than in any other Australian government.
