Manitoba re-elects a Conservative majority government
In another land-slide victory for provincial conservative parties, the province of Manitoba has re-elected the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba to lead them.
Several outlets have called a majority government for the PC’s with Brian Pallister being re-elected as the province’s premier.
Currently, votes are still being counted throughout the province, but projections are showing that the Progressive Conservatives have defeated the challenging NDP by a landslide, while the Manitoba Liberal Party hangs on to a few seats.
The PC’s are predicted to hold onto 35 seats in the province which is several less than their prior majority. The NDP are predicted to gain several seats.
