Ian Tuxworth

Ian Lindsay Tuxworth (b. 18 June, 1942) is an Australian politician, who was Chief Minister of the Northern Territory of Australia from October 17 1984 until he resigned on May 10, 1986.

He then resigned from the Country Liberal Party and formed the NT Nationals Party. He was elected as an NT Nationals member by a margin of 19 votes at the 1987 election in his previous seat of Barkly. His victory was annulled by the Court of Disputed Returns after a successful challenge from losing independent candidate Maggie Hickey. On 5 September, 1987, he won a by-election, again defeating Hickey, who was now representing the Australian Labor Party (ALP). He stood unsuccessfully in the seat of Goyder in the 1990 Territory Election.
