South Australia's new Opposition Leader Steven Marshall has unveiled a trimmed down frontbench, with just eight in the shadow cabinet.
In a structure similar to the federal government, the Liberals will have an inner and outer shadow ministry.
Four members will serve on the outer front bench, with senior spokesmen taking responsibility for their portfolios in the shadow cabinet room.
Mr Marshall says the Liberals believe the fresh approach would work better for South Australians.
He pledged to take the same structure into government if the opposition wins the 2014 state election.
'We believe this is a more effective, streamlined and focused shadow cabinet,' Mr Marshall told reporters on Friday.
Missing from the front bench line-up is Isobel Redmond who Mr Marshall replaced as opposition leader earlier this week.
Ms Redmond quit the job citing party disunity and ongoing speculation over the leadership for her decision.
She rejected an offer to serve on the opposition front bench though Mr Marshall said the former leader would continue to act as his mentor.
