Election Results

Preliminary results follow — subject to revision until Friday, 1 May 2009.

A total of 1,983 ballots were cast at the close of the election. 1,967 were required to exceed minimum turnout. Because fewer candidates ran than the number of vacancies in the assembly, all candidates will ultimately be seated according to EA rules.
