Peter Hughes (Australian politician)
Hughes, who had joined the Liberal Party in 1969, entered the House of Assembly at its inaugural election in 1974 and was elected Liberal leader. In January 1977 he resigned from the Liberal Party, arguing that he could better represent his constituents as an independent (he was succeeded as Liberal leader by James Leedman). He was defeated in 1979.
