Labor concedes South Australian election

Share

Defeated Labor premier Jay Weatherill conceded defeat just before 10pm on Saturday night, and announced he will resign as the state's Labor leader following the loss.

That was well down on the 45 per cent the Liberals won in 2014 but most of what it lost went to Nick Xenophon's SA-BEST candidates and flowed back by way of preferences.

When asked what his next movements would be, Mr Xenophon said he would spend a period away from the public eye.

"It's a great state, and we've got a very bright future here in South Australia".

Watford offered little aside from a dipping free-kick from Roberto Pereyra that hit the bar when they were already 3-0 down. "For Mo to be involved in five goals is fantastic but to score four is even more fantastic", said Klopp.

Mr Xenophon said he was also still considering taking legal action against Premier-elect Steven Marshall over his claims SA-BEST had "done a deal" with Labor to beat the Liberals during the election campaign.

Nick Xenophon has been left to lick his wounds after a stunning failure to win any lower house seats at Saturday's South Australian state election, but he won't be making his way back to federal parliament.

Speaking from Sydney, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, leader of the Federal Liberal Party, said the result was an endorsement of his government's national energy policy. I think the handicap has caught up with us on this occasion, ' he told Labor supporters at the West Adelaide Footy Club.

Opposition Leader Steven Marshall's Liberal Party was projected to win 24 seats in the 47-seat parliament by ABC election analyst Antony Green.
