Premier-Designate[edit]

Hello all. Just a reminder that Mr Barnett is not the Premier yet. Until he is officially sworn in by the Governor he is the 'Premier-designate'. This is what we did after the Federal election.Doktor Waterhouse (talk) 03:51, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Who has designated him? Some argue he is the PM/Premier-elect, and it is a furphy to say that's what we did after the 2007 election. People kept changing between the two. Timeshift (talk) 03:52, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
My bad, 'elect' is correct.Doktor Waterhouse (talk) 03:56, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Who elected him? With a minority government he's basically waiting for the Nationals to sponsor him, to convince the Governor to designate him as the Premier. - Mark 04:01, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
The public elected the parliament the way it did, and the way parliament fell was in Barnett's favour as the next Premier. Timeshift (talk) 04:02, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Either way, I think we can agree that he shouldn't be referred to as Premier until he's sworn in. - Mark 04:04, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
I have no qualms with Premier-elect. Timeshift (talk) 04:07, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, just some people (including in the media - see the headline on WA today) are over-eager in declaring that Barnett is now Premier. Which is plainly wrong. - Mark 04:10, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
My intention with this was to highlight the fact that he is not the Premier until officially sworn in. As long as we have something there to distinguish it then I think we're golden.Doktor Waterhouse (talk) 04:16, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

The Cabinet is to be sworn in on Tuesday 23rd of September, just so everyone knows. Doktor Waterhouse (talk) 09:59, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

the link for reference #28 is broken. Does anyone know where it should point? Thank you[edit]

28 "ABC News" seems fine. But footnote numbers may change as the article is edited... Did you mean the http://westernpatriot.com.au link? It's currently dead, and I've tagged it as such.

Premier[edit]

Hi all

A reminder that Barnett is still Premier until McGowan's government is sworn in. Haven't seen a date yet but should be within the week - see Kevin Rudd for example - Rudd's time in office ended on the 18th of September, with the election being on the 7th.

Until his government is sworn in, Barnett is Premier, and McGowan is Premier-elect. AGTWSAWSPE (talk) 03:22, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
