General Election Results - 31 May 2006

In the general election of Wednesday, 31 May 2006, the 9 seats were contested by 3 parties – the New People’s Liberation Movement (NPLM) led by outgoing Chief Minister John Osborne, the Movement for Change and Prosperity (MCAP) led by outgoing opposition leader Rosalind Cassell-Sealy and the Montserrat Democratic Party led by Lowell Lewis – and 4 independent candidates. 

A 77% turnout of the 3,331-member electorate, in a well-organised and orderly election, resulted in Lowell Lewis receiving the highest number of votes, followed by four MCAP candidates.  The MCAP won 26.1% of the popular vote.  The remaining seats went to three NPLM (29.4% of votes) and an independent.  Although the MCAP won the most seats in the Legislative Council, the newly formed government, led by Dr. Lewis, was a coalition between the MDP, the NPLM, and an independent.
