One Bermuda Alliance candidate Patricia Gordon-Pamplin stormed to victory in Constituency 23 last night to return to the House of Assembly for the third successive term.

Ms Gordon-Pamplin topped the poll in Paget West with 676 votes, while Progressive Labour Party candidate Darius Tucker received 202 votes.

Ms Gordon-Pamplin stated: “I congratulate my opponent. On the ground he fought a fair campaign, and I applaud him for the effort he put into the constituency. I wish also to thank the constituents of Paget West for their support, and I trust that I will live up to all their expectations in the upcoming Parliament.”

Reflecting on her electoral campaign and her opponent’s platform, Ms Gordon-Pamplin said: “Each of us brings good ideas to the table. The election is the people’s choice, which we both respect.”

Echoing her sentiments, Progressive Labour Party candidate Mr Tucker noted of the day that “exercising one’s democratic right and social conscience were very important”.

Mr Tucker said that failing to win a seat in Parliament in 2012 would not be the end of his political career. “I am totally committed to having a part to play, if not as an MP then sitting on the branch committee, actively involved in doing some sort of work politically.”

On hearing the final result, he observed, “The people of Paget have spoken. I’ll go back to being an ordinary citizen and press on from here.”

There were six spoiled ballots. Voter turn out was 76.93 percent with 884 voters taking part.
