South Australian Election: Despite Swing, Mike Rann Claims Third Term For Labor

The South Australian Premier, Mike Rann, has claimed victory for the ALP in the South Australian election.

It is Rann’s third consecutive win, since taking office in 2002.

Despite an anti-Labor swing of 8.4%, which saw the ALP poll just 48.4% of the two-party-preferred vote, the government lost only 2 seats and held 26 of the 47 seats in the House of Assembly.
