Government at election: At the previous general election in June 1998, the Australian Labor Party had won 44 seats, one seat short of a majority. Beattie was commissioned as Premier of a Labor Party minority government with the support of Peter Wellington, the Independent member for the electoral district of Nicklin. The resignation of a member elected as a candidate for Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party prompted a by-election for the seat of Mulgrave on 2 December 1998. The Labor candidate won the seat, giving the Beattie government majority support in the Legislative Assembly; for details, see John Wanna, 'Queensland', Australian Journal of Politics and History, Australian Political Chronicle, July-December 1998, 45 (2) June 1999: 271-276.
Independents: The vote shown for independents at this Queensland Assembly election is the sum of votes cast for all candidates who ran for office without a registered party name. There were 79 such candidates.
