Governor of South Australia
October 24, 1856
Before the 1890s, there was no formal party system in
South Australia. The liberals dominated government from 1893 to 1905 with Labor support, with the conservatives mostly in opposition. Labor took government when they gained more seats than the liberals in 1905, which saw non-Labor politics begin to merge in to various party incarnations. The conservatives merged with the Liberal and Democratic Union(formed in 1906) to become the Liberal Union in 1910, when Labor formed the first South Australian majority government. No "Country" or rural conservative parties emerged as serious forces, often folding in to the non-Labor party.
