Minority government: First period in office for Rann: After the March 2002 general election, the Rann Australian Labor Party minority government was formed with the support of Independent Peter Lewis who became Speaker of the House of Assembly.
Change of partisan support for premier: On 4 December 2002, Independent member Rory McEwen was sworn in as a minister in a Rann Australian Labor Party and Independent coalition government. The willingness of McEwen to become part of the government while remaining an Independent transformed the government from a minority government relying on the casting vote of the Speaker to a coalition government with majority support on the floor of the Assembly. This change in the party composition of the parliamentary support for the premier meant that a second period in office had commenced for Rann; see next period in office for South Australia.
