And now it's all over!
|Look at what we saw flying ovehead on our way back into Stanley|
Here is a list of the Election Candidates and the votes cast:
|The results of this years General Election|
The boxes came in from camp, the counters counted and we interviewed - and in my case, I was interviewee for FITV. We had alovely chat about the media coverage of the run up to the election.

|Some of the counters busy at work|
|Our very own News Editor talking to first time candidate Michael Poole|
|FITV hard at work, waiting to interview HE the Governor Nigel Haywood|
|Everyone was eagerly awaiting the results. The closer it got to 10pm|
the more people turned up.
It was about 10 o'clock at night when the results came through. It was Chief Executive and Returning Officer Keith Padgett who announced the results.

So we have six re-elected Members of the Legislative Assembly and two new Members. Michael Poole and Phyl Rendall both had an impressive number of votes and all MLAs were sworn into office at the Governor's House earlier today.
Following our busy few days of watching democracy in motion, we have the Remembrance Day Parade this Sunday. I'm always impressed by the turnout at each of the memorial occasions throughout the year here in the Falklands and I expect there to be just as good a turnout this year.
Until next time...
