How often does Australia changes its Government.

Many people have commented on the continual change of Government in Australia, but I feel they are a bit misinformed.  Party leaders may have changed, but governments have stayed in power for some substantial terms, with the shortest one being THREE years in the 1970’s.

During the last 69 years there have been 7 changes of Government, as shown below:.

  • 7 September 2013 to current day : Liberal-Coalition Government for 6 years and ongoing
  • 24 November 2007 to 7 September 2013 : ALP Government for 6 years
  • 2 March 1996 to 24 November 2007 : Liberal-Coalition Government for 11 years
  • 5 March 1983 to 2 March 1996 : ALP Government for 13 years
  • 13 December 1975 to 5 March 1983 : Liberal-Coalition Government for 8 years
  • 2 December 1972 to 13 December 1975 : ALP Government for 3 years
  • 10 December 1949 to 2 December 1972 : Liberal-Coalition Government for 23 years

During the last 69 years, the seat of Government has been held by a Liberal Coalition government for 47 years, and an ALP (Labor) Government for 22 years.
