General Election Results - 8 October 1991

Polling Day was on Tuesday, 8 October 1991.  The previous People's Liberation Movement (PLM) government had broken down in mid-September, following the resignation of Benjamin Chalmers, then the Minister of Communications and Works. Chalmers resigned his membership in the PLM after a series of public and private disagreements with party-leader and Chief Minister John Osborne.

Nomination Day was 30 September 2014, one week before the elections. A record number of twenty-six persons presented themselves as candidates for the seven Parliamentary seats. The Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM), which had been slowly coming together over the previous year, became the National Progressive Party (NPP) with Rueben T. Meade as leader, and fielded seven candidates.  The National Development Party (NDP) presented six, and the PLM, offered four candidates. On Nomination Day, nine independent candidates offered themselves for five of the constituencies.

The election resulted in the National Progressive Party (NPP)gaining the parliamentary majority, with four of the seven seats in the Legislative Council under the election campaign slogan was "Give the Youth a Chance"..  One seat each went to the other parties contesting the election – the People’s Liberation Movement (PLM) and National Development Party (NDP) – and an independent.  Reuben Meade became the new Chief Minister.  Voter turnout was 64%, and the winning NPP received 43% of the votes cast.
