The 46th Newfoundland and Labrador House of Assembly was summoned to meet on March 10, 2008, its members having been sworn in and elected its speaker on November 1, 2007, and was dissolved on September 19, 2011. The Progressive Conservative government led by Danny Williams was re-elected with a landslide victory. The Liberal and NDP opposition was nearly wiped off the electoral map.
