Incumbent Chief Minister

Natasha Fyles

The incumbent Labor government, led by Chief Minister Natasha Fyles, will be trying to win a third term in government. They will be opposed by the Country Liberal Party (CLP), led by Lia Finocchiaro.

Both leaders are women and both represent seats in Palmerston (ironically, Finocchiaro was once the member for Lawler's seat of Drysdale before changing to her current seat of Spillett).

Notes change

  1. On 18 February 2021, Mark Turner, the member for Blain, was expelled from the Labor Party caucus but remains a rank-and-file member of the party, although he sits on the crossbench, bringing Labor's seat total to 13. However, Labor won the seat of Daly from the CLP at a by-election on 11 September 2021, bringing their seat total back to 14. Turner was later expelled from the party altogether.[1]
  2. The CLP lost the seat of Daly to Labor at a by-election.
