But it got a bit more complicated than that. The next election was held only three years later in 1991 after which it has been every four years on the odd year. The reason for that 3 year term is not known.

Whilst NSW had 4 year terms from 1984, it wasn't until 1995 that the term was fixed. Up until then, the Premier could still go to an early election, which Greiner did in 1991. He regretted it, moving from majority to minority government and then, after a series of scandals, his resignation in 1992 following an adverse ICAC ruling. John Fahey took over but lost the 1995 election to Bob Carr.

Everybody knows that the 2010 federal election was Abbott vs Gillard but what would of the 2010 federal election look like if John Howard's replacement after the 2007 election witch ended up becoming the head of the National war memorial after his time as liberal leader didn't get double crossed by Malcolm from Point Piper and Kevin 07 didn't get stabbed in the back by Julia Gillard months before the 2010

I see you're too young/gullible to realise that The Chaser's are a satirical group of people, and chaser.com.au is a satirical website.

There is a federal by election coming up witch would most likely mean a Bega by election and a ministerial reshuffle if the current NSW transport minister wins that federal seat

I think he would have to resign before the election so the reshuffle would be required whether he wins or loses the election. And the by election is is not just "most likely" but definite,

Well with the Eden-Monaro By Election and looking at the Results, Kristy McBain won the seat.

Personally, Im quite happy with the result (yes, its my opinion) and Looking at the Data The Greens seem to be becoming a bit more popular with 7 percent. And Labor is still sitting.
