The Grits Are Baaaack

The Liberals are still in power in Nova Scotia.

 

This makes Stephen McNeil’s Liberals the first political party to win back-to-back majorities since 1988 when the PC’s did it in the John Buchanan era.

 

It was a late night and wasn’t until close to one o’clock this morning when the Liberal majority was declared.

 

The Liberals were elected in 27 seats, the Tories took 17 seats and the NDP were elected in 7.

 

Even with the advance polls available, there was only a 46 percent voter turnout in the province, which makes you wonder if the system needs to be re-vamped?

 

Women will make up a third of the new legislature with the MLA percentage gong from 29 to 33 percent.
