South Australia July to December 2019

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The period under review marks the second year of Steven Marshall’s government in South Australia, after their long period in opposition. At this point in the electoral cycle, nearing mid‐way until the 2022 state election, Steven Marshall’s Liberal government has, at times, struggled to impose its narrative and agenda. This period was dominated by its troubled handling of the Land Tax reform — a political headache largely of its own making. The government was also making bold announcements on the issue of privatisation. What was also striking was that, somewhat off the radar, it was quietly introducing some interesting new developments in the area of social policy. The end of the year was overshadowed by the national bushfire crisis, which also had an impact on South Australia.
