Previous Prime Minister
The 1946 South Arabian elections were the first elections to the Federal Assembly and were won by the Progressive Party.
Whilst the Federation of South Arabia was established in 1939 political instability followed by the outbreak of the Second World War prevented elections from being held earlier.
The elections were won by the Progressive Party who won 21 out of the 35 seats in the Assembly.
