The 33rd Yukon Legislative Assembly commenced on October 12, 2011 after Yukon voters returned a majority Yukon Party government under the leadership of Darrell Pasloski. The Yukon NDP became the official opposition while the Liberals took third place status.
The membership in this Legislature increased by 1 seat after the boundary redistribution.
After losing opposition status in the general election and going from 5 seats to 2, the Liberal party has been beset with leadership issues. Former leader Arthur Mitchell resigned after being defeated in the redistricted Copperbelt North riding. He was replaced by interim leader Darius Elias who left the leadership position and the caucus on August 17, 2012. By default Sandy Silver became leader of the party as the sole remaining MLA. So far they have not chosen a permanent leader to run the party.
