Official List: 2020 General Election Winners

October 2, 2020 | 15 Comments

The Parliamentary Registrar announced the official results of the 2020 General Election, with the PLP recording a landslide victory, claiming 30 of the 36 seats in the House of Assembly, and winning 62.10% of the popular vote.

The PLP made a strong showing in Southampton, picking up two more seats, with Jason Wade defeating the incumbent Leah Scott, who was the OBA’s Deputy Leader, while Crystal Caesar defeated the incumbent Ben Smith.

The PLP also picked up C19 [Jeanne Atherden's old seat] with Jache Adams claiming the win, Anthony Richardson won C7 [previously held by the OBA's Sylvan Richards] and Vance Campbell won C9 [previously held by the OBA's Trevor Moniz] to bolster the PLP to a super majority in the House of Assembly.

Slideshow of the candidate results in all 36 seats:

The PLP will need a whole new Senate team as their five Senators [C. Caesar, A. Richardson, V. Campbell, K Simmons & I. Simmons-Wade] all won seats, and as the Governing party, they are allocated 5 senate seats.

The only remaining OBA MPs left in Parliament are Craig Cannonier, Michael Dunkley, Cole Simons, Susan Jackson, Scott Pearman, and Jarion Richardson, with the OBA having lost 5 of the 11 seats they previously held, including in areas that had been viewed as OBA leaning.

The newly formed FDM, which fielded 14 candidates in this election, did not win any seats, however, won 1384 votes [5.37% of the popular vote] in total, while the Independents running won a combined 67 votes [0.26%]. The total vote count was 25763 out of a total of 46311 registered voters.

    Under the Westminster system it would look as if the PLP had a landslide victory and had the support of the majority of registered voters. However, the PLP won 62% of the 25,763 votes which totaled just over 50% of registered voters. Simply put over 31,000 or 65% of registered voters did not support the PLP or bother to vote. Hardly a ringing endorsement of the PLP.

      Simply put over 31000 or 65% of registered voters didn’t support OBA or bothered to vote for them. This seems more likely.

        He needs to find another individual to lead the UBPoba before he comes on here talking for is party he clearly voted for lol.

      Amazing, the results didn’t work out in your favor? The majority of the people, or should, I say, minority returned the Government-of -the-day, you’re not convinced there is a ringing endorsement.

      Trump didn’t get the popular vote. Based on your analysis, he didn’t get a ringing endorsement?

      I’m not a supporter of party politics, but the problem of any system, is to lie, deceive and reflect.

      I think Bermudians, in general, don’t like to be made fools of. We are hard working people who do not like to be taken for granted. Certainly, the OBA, by now, is fully aware of this.

      No one is afraid of the boogieman anymore!! Politics in Bermuda is maturing very rapidly maturing. This is a good thing.

      Being a Hater is A serious disease!! I’m sure it doesn’t matter… the final fact is that they won and will be the Government for the next term!! Have a great weekend!

    And What the people that did vote voted for PLP. The OBA should have done better when they got in the first time. The people realize that the OBA is not for the people. Simple.. You can analyze it anyway you want. Your OBA supporters should have come out to vote.

  3. Disagreement here. The P.L.P. won. That RINGS CLEARLY AND AUDIBLY in ALL ears. Hats off to the P.L.P.
    Great work for the P.L.P.
    Continue on, the P.L.P.
    Congratulations!!!!!
    HIP..HIP…HORRAY!!!!!

    Keep Quiet

  5. biggadon says:

    SIMPLY PUT 31000 OR 65% OR REGISTERED VOTER DID NOT SUPPORT THE oba OR BOTHERED TO VOTE FOR THEM….. thats more like it.

  6. Bermudian says:

    Say it loud for the people in the back!

  7. Charlly X says:

    That’s your opinion / analysis of the numbers. hMMMM sounds like a spin on sour Grapes. Those that didn’t vote for any of the 3 had their reasons . 3 constituencies didn’t have to vote. So who’s to Blame for the oba not being able to provide an alternative for them ? Hence the FDM has been formed.. Out of 31 only six made it speaks volumes. People might not be totally satisfied with the government of the day, but they sure as hell don’t have confidence in the Weakest Opposition. And because Cc got confirmation still don’t spell full support. He missed his calling , he should be a minister of a church Need I say more

  8. Lorraine says:

    another sad day for Bermudians. Nothing to celebrate.

  9. Ringmaster says:

    Having trouble understanding simple numbers? How about over 5,000 less PLP voters from the 2017 Election turnout? That doesn’t indicate full support does it? By the way I didn’t vote so no sour grapes. The result is the result.

  10. Question says:

    Southampton East people are already regretting it.

  11. Bermudian Lady says:

    Congratulations are due to the PLP especially Wayne Caines and his colleague. OBA, Mr and Mrs Bermuda are tired of you throwing stones inside a glass house. To the newly formed FDM keep your hands to the hoe, and then, perhaps after sometime you will have earned some seats.
