Change of party leader: On 6 December 2014, Katy Gallagher was replaced as leader of the Australian Labor Party in the ACT Legislative Assembly and Chief Minister of a Labor Party and ACT Greens coalition government, by Andrew Barr who had been the unanimous choice of the Labor Party caucus. Gallagher had resigned her seat in the Legislative Assembly to contest preselection for a vacancy created by the resignation of the Australian Labor Party senator for the ACT.
Coalition: The coalition agreement between the Australian Labor Party and the ACT Greens was renewed, with Barr as Chief Minister of a Labor Party and ACT Greens coalition government; ACT Greens member Shane Rattenbury continued in the ministry.
Size of ministry: Chief Minister Barr's first ministry was composed of five members, a sixth to be added when the Legislative Assembly vacancy created by Gallagher's resignation was filled early in 2015; the Labor caucus would then choose another minister.
In August 2014, all members of the ACT Legislative Assembly had assented to a measure that increased the membership of the Assembly from 17 to 25 to take affect from the election due in October 2016. After this election had been held on 15 October 2016, the Barr Australian Labor Party and ACT Greens coalition government was confirmed in office with a ministry increased to seven members, three of whom were women; see 'ACT new Labor ministry revealed as Andrew Barr formally reelected as Chief Minister', ABC News, 30 October 2016, ABC website online here [accessed 9 December 2016].
