South Australia's new cabinet has been sworn in during a ceremony at Government House, while the state's opposition looks to have found a new leader.
The 11 new ministers - part of the first Liberal cabinet in 16 years - took their oaths in front of Governor Hieu Van Le and family members on Thursday afternoon.
Premier Steven Marshall, Deputy Premier Vickie Chapman and Treasurer Rob Lucas were present but had been sworn in at a ceremony earlier in the week.
Following formal proceedings, Mr Marshall said the new ministers were "absolutely delighted" but the celebrations would be short-lived.
"We had a meeting this morning of the new Cabinet," he told reporters.
"We reaffirmed our commitment to every promise that we made in the lead-up to this election".
"The ministers will now head back to their office, get their briefing from the departments and then on with the important work of getting South Australia back on track."
Among those in Mr Marshall's line-up is Minister for Child Protection Rachel Sanderson, who declared victory after a closely fought contest over Labor candidate Jo Chapley on Wednesday night.
Other key members include Dan van Holst Pellekaan who will serve as energy minister, John Gardner who will oversee the education portfolio and Stephan Knoll, responsible for transport.
Mr Lucas is the only member of the 14 person team to have served in cabinet before, but Mr Marshall said he was "absolutely confident" in every member of his line-up.
Former Liberal premiers John Olsen, Dean Brown, Steele Hall and Rob Kerin attended the ceremony, which was open to the media.
On the other side of politics, former health minister Peter Malinauskas looks set to replace Jay Weatherill as leader of the South Australian Labor Party after he nominated for the position on Thursday.
Mr Malinauskas said he will spend the coming days in discussions with parliamentary colleagues.
"Despite the obvious disappointment of losing government, the future for our party and movement is bright," he said in a statement released on Thursday.
The 37-year-old is widely tipped to take the position after former treasurer Tom Koutsantonis, another frontrunner, ruled himself out of contention on Wednesday.
He would take over from former premier Jay Weatherill, who announced he would step down from the leadership following Labor's defeat at the state election.
Mr Malinauskas, a former shop assistants' union chief, moved from the upper house to the safe western Adelaide seat of Croydon at the election.
His deputy would likely be Susan Close, who nominated herself for the role on Thursday and said she supported Mr Malinauskas in his bid for the leadership.
The Labor caucus will meet to make a decision on April 9.
