Notes

Change of party leader: Martin, who had won office as Chief Minister of a majority Australian Labor Party government after the Legislative Assembly election of 2001 and increased her majority at the 2005 election, resigned as Chief Minister on 27 November 2007 after dissatisfaction with her leadership within the Labor caucus and the selection of Henderson as party leader on 26 November.
