  • The Parliament of South Australia at Parliament House, Adelaide is the bicameral legislature of the Australian state of South Australia. It consists of the 47-seat House of Assembly (lower house) and the 22-seat Legislative Council (upper house). All of the lower house and half of the upper house is filled at each election. It follows a Westminster system of parliamentary government. The fourth-term South Australian Branch of the Australian Labor Party has been in government since the 2002 election. The Queen is represented in the State by the Governor of South Australia. According to the South Australian Constitution, unlike the Federal Parliament, and the parliaments of the other states and territories of Australia, neither the Sovereign or the Governor is considered to be a part of the South Australian Parliament. However, the same role and powers are granted to them. The 47-seat lower house consists of 24 Labor, 21 Liberal and 2 independents, Geoff Brock and Martin Hamilton-Smith. Following the 2014 election, the lower house consisted of 23 Labor, 22 Liberal and 2 independents, Geoff Brock and Bob Such. Hamilton-Smith became an independent shortly after the election, reducing the Liberals to 21 seats. Both Hamilton-Smith and fellow independent Geoff Brock are in cabinet and provide confidence and supply while retaining the right to vote on conscience. Labor went from minority to majority government when Nat Cook won the 2014 Fisher by-election which was triggered by the death of Bob Such. Despite this, the Jay Weatherill Labor government kept crossbench MPs Brock and Hamilton-Smith in cabinet, giving the government a 26 to 21 parliamentary majority. The 22-seat upper house consists of eight Labor, eight Liberal, two Green, two Family First, one Dignity for Disability and one Nick Xenophon Team MLCs. (en)

  • Parlament Australii Południowej (Parliament of South Australia) jest głównym organem władzy ustawodawczej w stanie Australia Południowa. Formalnie składa się z trzech izb: królowej Australii reprezentowanej przez gubernatora, Izby Zgromadzenia oraz Rady Ustawodawczej. W praktyce w procesie stanowienia prawa biorą udział tylko dwie ostatnie. Choć korzenie parlamentaryzmu w Australii Południowej sięgają już roku 1840, w swej obecnej formie parlament powstał w 1857, gdy weszła w życie konstytucja przyznająca tej ówczesnej kolonii brytyjskiej autonomię. Od powstania Związku Australijskiego w 1901, pełni rolę jednej z sześciu legislatur stanowych. (pl)
