Local Government Elections ends with a clear tie with both the PNM and UNC claiming victory in 7 cities/boroughs/corporations each. However, there were some key takeaways on the night.
– The UNC gained 3 districts in San Fernando where the PNM had previously enjoyed complete control.
– The UNC managed to retain control of Siparia despite a strong effort by the PNM to bring the constituency into play.
– Sangre Grande remained the most hotly contested seat with the UNC claiming victory there this time around.
– The PNM is projected to make some gains with districts such as Barataria and may achieve more when the final tallies are confirmed over the next few days.
