Queensland State election, 2009

Queensland State election, 2009. This poll saw Labor’s re-election – its eighth consecutive election win – under Anna Bligh, Australia's first female Premier popularly voted into office. At the same time the ALP lost eight of its seats, half of these in Brisbane, and endured a drop in its primary vote of almost five percent. The newly-merged Liberal-National Party (LNP) increased its standing to 34 seats, gaining an important stronger foothold in the southeast and reducing Labor’s dominance to the far northwest and the capital and its surrounds. Significantly, One Nation disappeared from the political map after losing its sole seat in a still-fractured electoral landscape.
