Previous Prime Minister
The October 1950 general election saw the Progressive Party regain its majority in the Federal Assembly.
Following the February 1950 election the Labour Party had governed as a minority with support from the National Party, however in August the government fell when two Labour Members of the Assembly left the party to form the National Labour Party in protest at some of the governments proposed nationalisations of industry which were proposed; following this split the government lost its majority and the National Party also withdrew its support voting in favour of the Progressive Party's motion of no confidence bringing early elections.
The Progressives regained their majority in the Assembly and formed the second Progressive government.
