Nova Scotia’s governing Liberals have won a second majority government, the first time a party has won back-to-back majorities in Nova Scotia since 1988. The Liberals captured 27 seats, the PC’s 17 and the New Democrats won 7. There were many tight races locally, including in the Antigonish riding.
Liberal incumbent Randy Delorey is on for his second term after defeating Ray Mattie with 43% of the votes. Delorey says winning a second majority government means Nova Scotians have confidence in their Liberal government:
Delorey won the Antigonish riding after a close race against candidates Ray Mattie with the PC’s and the NDP’s Moraig Macgillivray. Recently, the Antigonish riding has flucuated support between all three parties.
