Major call on SA election result after big swing towards Labor

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.

Mr Green forecasted a swing of around 7.8 per cent across the city, but cautioned that was based on early voting.

In the state’s lower house, 24 seats are required for either party to form a majority government.

Mr Marshall is also looking likely to be in strife in his own seat of Dunstan, facing a 9.9 per cent swing against him.

“The Premier has got a bit of a fight on his hands,” Mr Green said.
