Vickie Chapman, since 2002.
Eastern Adelaide. Bragg covers suburbs of Adelaide, stretching from those immediately to the south-east of the Adelaide city centre, out to the foot of the Adelaide Hills. Most of the electorate’s population lies in the City of Burnside, with a minority in the Adelaide Hills and a small area in Mitcham council and Norwood Payneham and St Peters council.
Bragg gained Eastwood, Frewville, Glenside and Glenunga from Unley and also gained Dulwich and Rose Park from Dunstan. Bragg also lost Beulah Park, Kensington, Kensington Park and Kensington Gardens to Dunstan, and lost Auldana to Morilta. These changes increased the Liberal margin from 17.4% to 17.8%.

Graham Ingerson was elected to Bragg at the 1983 Bragg by-election. He served in the ministry from 1993, and as Deputy Premier from 1996, until he resigned from both roles in 1998. Ingerson retired at the 2002 election.
