South Australian Legislative Council

Even after electoral legislation had been implemented in 1967 by Steele Hall that produced a fairer electoral system for the House of Assembly, the council remained a house of property.

Below is the history of the composition of the Legislative Council since the introduction of Proportional Representation at the 1975 election.

As part of the transitional arrangements associated with the expansion of the Council from 20 members to 22 members, the Council in this period had 21 members.
