Peter Malinauskas is almost certain to be installed as the next South Australian Premier, with ABC’s election analyst calling the result for Labor.
With a third of booths reporting results, Antony Green has declared the Steven Marshall’s government had been defeated.
The Liberal Party has suffered swings across the state, including in key battleground Elder where Labor candidate Nadia Clancy experienced a swing in her favour of more than 10 per cent.
