SA election: Jay to resign as Labor leader after loss to Liberals

The conservative Liberal Party has won the election of South Australia state, ending the Australian Labor Party's streak of 16 years in power in the state.

Mr Weatherill, who has been Premier since 2011, visited Government House on Sunday morning to officially resign as premier, saying he planned to see out his term in State Parliament.

"I haven't really had a proper break for 20 years but I'll take a bit of a break", he said.

"I'm proud of what we've done locally, but I'm really looking forward to being a good local member of Parliament".

Mr Xenophon said he was considering taking legal action against Premier-elect Steven Marshall for having suggested he had done a deal with Labor.

Mr Weatherill was the most vocal opponent of the federal government's National Energy Guarantee, Mr Turnbull said.

"In the end, negativity won, big money won, the pokies lobby got the best of us this time around but it's not over and I'm not giving up", he said.

Barcelona 2 Athletic Bilbao 0: Messi and Alcacer secure comfortable success
Only against Sevilla (19) and Espanyol (18) has the Argentine player netted more goals for Barcelona . Barca have not lost at home to Athletic since 2001 and are so far unbeaten in the league all season.

"This is an incredible opportunity".

The election of a majority government in South Australia will provide the certainty in policy-making essential for building confidence, the state's peak business group says.

Labor is likely to win 18 seats - a respectable result after their lengthy reign.

Mr Xenophon's SA-BEST had more success in the Legislative Council, where it is expected to claim two of the 11 seats up for grabs.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull offered his congratulations to Mr Marshall.

SA-BEST leader Nick Xenophon will also have more time on his hands after failing spectacularly to win lower house seats, an outcome he blamed on stretching the party's resources too thin and the "dirty" campaign waged against it.
