Warwick South Central

The Progressive Labour Party candidate Marc Bean of Warwick South Central swept to victory in Constituency 26 last night, retaining his seat.

The newlywed topped the polls with 507 votes, followed by One Bermuda Alliance candidate Ras Mykkal with 272 votes. There were 13 spoiled ballots.

Mr Bean said: “It’s been a long day and I am grateful to those residents who saw fit to vote for me and I’m also grateful for everyone who turned out. Mr Ras Mykkal was an excellent opponent.

“He obviously garnered 272 votes which reveals to me that I have to do more work within my constituency and my party as I look to improve continuously.

“I will head to my party’s headquarters to look at the rest of the results, as I won’t celebrate unless the PLP returns to Government. A victory for me is not as important as us retaining Government. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve.”

OBA candidate Mr Mykkal said: “I think I could have done much better but I have a completely different way of thinking outside of the political norm. When I got involved with OBA, everything was already in election mode which impacted the time needed for me to prepare.

“I accept the results and my congratulations to Marc. I am disappointed that I am not in a position to do more for the people that supported me as they feel I have a progressive way of thinking.”

Voter turnout was 65 percent with 779 of the 1191 voters taking part.

RESULTS:Marc Bean (PLP): 507

Ras Mykkal (OBA): 272
