Supervisor of Elections Dudley Lewis has reported that the candidate for the Progressive National Party (PNP), Amanda Misick, has been declared the winner of the Richmond Hill-Cheshire Hall by election.
Misick polled 455 votes to 385 votes for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDM) candidate Oral Selver.
Misick won by just 30 votes in last year’s general election but the seat was vacated by the court on the grounds that a third party candidate should have been disqualified on the grounds of dual citizenship.
PDM leader and leader of the opposition Sharlene Cartwright-Robinson called Premier Rufus Ewing on Friday night and congratulated him.
“This is democracy and the people have spoken and we will respect the voice of the people,” she said in a press statement.
Now that the elections of November 2012 are settled, I ask all of our supporters and the people of these Islands to let’s accept the results with dignity so that this country can move on,” the PDM leader added.
