It looks like two independents, Geoff Brock and Bob Such, will hold the balance of power in South Australia. Such is a former Liberal minister. Brock is relatively conservative.
With the Liberal Party likely to have a 52.5 per cent two-party preferred vote, it has a reasonable expectation to be allowed to govern.
Hopefully Brock and Such will realise the errors of Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott (remember them?) and declare that they will support a Liberal minority Government.
Certainly Steven Marshall should make no deals. He should declare that he will provide good government for all South Australians and that he expects Brock and Such will offer their support.
The people have spoken – a decisive majority of South Australians have voted for a change of government. Brock and Such should heed that vote.
