Leaders Handling Election Results (Winner and Loser)
« on: March 19, 2022, 10:09:48 AM »
I thought this was a good example of how elections should be handled - too bad not all of them are.

South Australian State Election (19-Mar-2022)

Steven Marshall concedes defeat to Labor's Peter Malinauskas. (ABC News: Leah MacLennan)

"I feel grateful that we live in a democracy where everybody gets their vote and today the people of South Australia have spoken, they've elected a new government," he said.

"But it doesn't take away from the work we have done in South Australia over the last four years."

Mr Malinauskas said Mr Marshall's concession call was "utterly generous, gracious and it was done with the class that we have become incredibly familiar with", and thanked Marshall for his "significant contribution to his party and to our state".

He said the Liberals "may be our adversary, but they are not our enemies".

"We thank them on what is a significant night for them too," he said.
