1Both Campbell Rhodes and Anthony McDonald, leaders of the United Islands Liberal Party and United Islands Labour Party respectively claimed they held the title of Leader of the Opposition during the second 1999 election. No conclusive answer was given until 2000, when the Georgeland Elections Office ruled that neither was Leader of the Opposition and that the position was vacant until being filled by Benedict Ingram.

2Porter was Leader of the Opposition by virtue of being the House of Commons leader of the party, but he was not the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party. That position, along with Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, belonged to Robin Sales. Sales subsequently resigned from the Senate and contested a by-election in August 2007 to enter the Lower House - when this occured, he also became the official Leader of the Opposition while Porter became Deputy Leader. During Porter's period as Leader, he used the title Acting Leader of the Opposition and never claimed to be the full-time leader; thus, he is not numbered in this list.
