CHARLOTTETOWN — Voters in P.E.I. have shed their century-old embrace of the Island’s two-party system, electing a Tory minority government and handing the upstart Green party official Opposition status for the first time.
With all polls reporting Tuesday, the Tories had won 12 seats, the Greens held eight, and the incumbent Liberals, led by Premier Wade MacLauchlan, had won six.
“Welcome to a new day in Prince Edward Island!” Tory Leader Dennis King told supporters, who immediately roared their approval.
