VANCOUVER – The New Democrats will lead British Columbia to 57 of the 87 seats in the legislature, which were confirmed by a majority in the final vote on Sunday.
B.C. The Liberals have won 28 seats, one of which is still awaiting legal action because the race is so close, with the Greeks holding two.
Prime Minister John Horgan in a statement was “humbled and honored” with the support of the British and Colombian people representing the NDP.
We will address this together, ”said Morgan.
The BC election began counting 660,000 postal and absentee votes, which began on Friday, 13 days after the October 24 provincial elections.
While it was clear that the NDP had successfully responded to a minority of them, it was not immediately clear how much.
That night, four races were too close to be called up, while the New Democrats were expected to win 53 seats, 27 Liberals and three Greens.
In the end, the new Democrats successfully exited the four strong contests, leading the Liberals to two of them by continuing the post count.
On Sunday, NDP candidate Harwinder Sandhu, a civil rights activist and nurse, officially took over the position at Vernon-Monashee, a long-standing Liberal base. Liberal nominee Eric Foster was first elected there in 2009.
“I feel very blessed to be given this opportunity to represent the people. I will make sure that every word sounds the same and I congratulate the people of Vernon-Monashee for exercising their right to vote, ”he said in a tweet.
New Democrat Henry Yao, a public defender and former youth worker, is guaranteed to win at Richmond South Center on Sunday with more than 179 votes in favor of Liberal Alexa Loo.
The NDP won two other tight races, the Abbotsford-Mission and Chilliwack-Kent, at the start of the race.
West Vancouver-Sea to Sky was expected to be the first Green seat in Lower Mainland until Liberal leader Jordan Sturdy defeated Jeremy Valeriote by just 41 votes on Saturday to secure the victory.
The solid line creates an automatic narrative of the case, says Election BC, and will reach B.C. Supreme Court to set a date.
The election made John Horgan the second NDP Prime Minister in B.C. history, following a campaign marked by the epidemic.
His enemies were watching him throughout the so-called “unnecessary” election campaign during the health crisis when the British and Colombians needed a steady hand.
But voters eventually rewarded Horgan for his gambling.
“This has been an extremely difficult election for many reasons, but it is one that I believe should have taken place,” Morgan said on election night.
