One Bermuda Alliance candidate Sylvan Richards Jr received a special anniversary gift when he won the Hamilton South constituency by 205 votes.
Mr Richards received 569 votes, Progressive Labour Party candidate Diallo Rabain received 364 votes and independent Gershwyn (Shilo) Smith received 20 votes. There were four spoiled ballots at the Harrington Sound Primary polling station.
Mr Richards and his wife intend to celebrate their anniversary next week.
I am very excited about the results as you can imagine, said Mr Richards, a casualty underwriter.
We worked hard and I had a very good team behind me, he said. I tried to get around to everyone, but for those I did not get to, I will be seeing them after the election.
I shook hands with Mr Rabain when the polls closed and told him I am looking forward to working with him further. He is a good man.
Mr Rabain left hurriedly after the count, deeply disheartened.
It is very disappointing, he said, especially since the person beating me didnt do much campaigning at all.
A philosophical Mr Smith said he would try again at the next election.
There were 957 votes cast an 87 percent turn out.
Sylvan Richards Jr (OBA): 569
Diallo Rabain (PLP): 364
Gershwyn (Shilo) Smith (IND): 20
