Description:
Annette Kay Hurley (born 23 March 1955) is an Australian politician. Elected at the 2004 federal election, she has been a Labor member of the Australian Senate since July 2005, representing the state of South Australia. She announced in July 2010 that she would not re-contest her seat at the next federal election.

Hurley was educated at the University of Adelaide, where she graduated in science. Before entering federal politics, she was member of the South Australian House of Assembly for the safe Labor seat of Napier in Adelaide's northern suburbs from 1993 to 2002, and was Deputy Leader of the Opposition 1997-2002. At the 2002 South Australian state election, she decided to stand in the marginal Liberal-held seat of Light, but lost narrowly. In that election her party had won government but was one seat short of a majority in the House of Assembly.

In June 2005, before even taking her seat in the Senate, Hurley was elected to the Opposition front bench and appointed Shadow Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs. She lost her front bench position in December 2006, after a shadow cabinet reshuffle instigated by new Leader of the Opposition Kevin Rudd.
