Tories win in Newfoundland and Labrador


Published

The Progressive Conservatives (PC) comfortably won a third successive term in office on Tuesday’s provincial election. Kathy Dunderdale becomes the new premier in her own right, having taken over from Danny Williams who stepped down a year ago.

The PC majority is, however, reduced from 44 seats to 37 seats in the 48 seat House of Assembly. They took 56% of the vote.

The Liberals remain the official opposition, having increased their tally to six from three in 2007, with 19% of the vote. The main winners of the night were the New Democratic Party (NDP) who increased their tally from one to five seats and took 25% of the vote.
