Loss of general election: Beginning of Palaszczuk's period in office: At the general election for the Queensland Legislative Assembly held on 31 January 2015, the Liberal National Party government of Premier Newman was defeated, gaining only 42 seats in the 89 seat Assembly. The Australian Labor Party, led by Annastacia Palaszczuk, won 44 seats, one seat short of a majority. After a delay resulting from the close result of the election and uncertainty about the successful candidates in several seats, Palaszczuk was commissioned as Premier of an Australian Labor Party interim minority government with the support of Independent member Peter Wellington on 14 February 2015. The interim ministry of three included Jackie Trad as Deputy Premier and Curtis Pitt as Treasurer. After the selection of the remaining ministers by the Labor caucus, the full ministry of 14 was sworn in on 16 February 2015.
Change in parliamentary support: At the general election for the Queensland Legislative Assembly held on 25 November 2017, the Palaszczuk Labor minority government was returned with 48 seats in an enlarged Assembly of 93 seats making Premier Palaszczuk the head of an Australian Labor Party majority government.
