Center-right conservatives and liberal environmental greens had a successful night on Tuesday, April 23 when voters in the Canadian Atlantic province of Prince Edward Island went to the polls for their provincial legislative assembly elections. The center-right Progressive Conservatives won a majority with 12 seats and the liberal Green Party will take over as the official opposition with 8 seats. The Liberal Party will have 6 seats and the New Democratic Party will have zero seats despite having more than 2,400 votes.

A conservative tide is on the rise in the Northern American country. 7 provinces out of the 10 provinces as well as the 3 territories are currently governed by conservative center-right parties including Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec. Nova Scotia, Yukon, and Newfoundland and Labrador are the only provinces left governed by the Liberal Party. The NDP in British Columbia, in coalition with the Greens, are also in power.
