And the PLP winners are ...

Jason Hayward reflected on a “bittersweet” victory after he reclaimed his House of Assembly seat unopposed yesterday.

Mr Hayward and Progressive Labour Party colleagues Michael Weeks and Neville Tyrrell were all declared winners after the One Bermuda Alliance and Free Democratic Movement fielded no candidates against them.

But Mr Hayward, who was nominated to run for Pembroke Central, insisted: “The overall objective is to win the confidence of the electorate to regain government and we still have a way to go before that is achieved.”

He added: “Naturally, I was elated; however, I know that constituents would have loved the opportunity to exercise their rights to vote.

“Despite being uncontested, I will continue to canvass the constituency with an aim to address constituent concerns and build a better community.”

Mr Tyrrell kept the constituency seat for Warwick South Central while Mr Weeks held on to Pembroke East Central.

Mr Tyrrell said that he was “very elated and honoured” to have another chance to serve his community.

He admitted that he was surprised to find out yesterday that he won his constituency seat by default.

Mr Tyrrell added: “I wish to thank my constituents for their continued support, especially my branch team.

“I look forward to giving them the level of service that will assist them to have productive lives.”

Mr Weeks did not respond to a request for comment by press time.
