The ALP

It seems now Labor has won the state election just a few minutes ago! I voted for The Greens 1 and Labor 2, so this result is fantastic. Another Liberal free four years!

Here's the news according to the South Australian ABC website:

Labor returned in SA

Labor has been returned in South Australia with a resounding victory for the Rann Government in today's state election.

With 60 per cent of the vote counted, the Labor Party has won more than 46 per cent of the vote, which represents a swing of 10 per cent.

The ABC election computer is predicting the party will win 30 seats, meaning the Government of Mike Rann will govern in its own right.

The Liberals have suffered a swing against the party of more than 6 per cent and are likely to win just 14 seats.

The Democrats have also suffered a 4 per cent swing against the party, but Family First have won almost 6 per cent of the vote which represents a swing of more than 3 per cent.
