Anne Press had a parliamentary career that spanned two decades and the opposite ends of the policial spectrum. Initially elected in 1959 as an ALP councillor, Press was soon expelled (in 1959) from the party following her vote against party lines when she voted against the Legislative Council Abolition Bill. She then became a member of the Independent Labour Group, to which she belonged for eight years. She joined the liberal party in 1967, and was successfully reelected to the council as their candidate in 1970. She retired from parliament in 1978.
