Seating Plan

The seating plan shows the layout of the legislative chamber, including the location of Members of the House of Assembly, presiding officers and table officers. The assignment of seats is determined in consultation with representatives of recognized parties in the House.

By tradition, members of the governing party occupy the seats to the right of the speaker or chair, with the premier and other ministers in the front benches. Occasionally, due to space constraints, members of the governing party may also sit on the left. Members representing opposition parties are seated to the left, with the leader of the official opposition sitting opposite the premier.

The seating plan is updated frequently, as party affiliations or legislative roles change.
