Davies, Shayne, Canadian Parliamentary Review


The Fifty-sixth Legislative Assembly was dissolved on August 26, 2010, four years into the first mandate of the Shawn Graham Government. At dissolution the standings in the House were: Liberals 32; Progressive Conservatives 21; Vacant 2.

New Brunswickers elected a new government on September 27, 2010. The results of the provincial election, which for the first time was held on a fixed election date, gave the Progressive Conservatives a majority government with 42 seats, while the Liberals won 13. The election resulted in 26 new Members and the number of women parliamentarians increased from seven, in 2006, to eight. After failing to win a seat in the election, New Brunswick NDP Leader Roger Duguay resigned as party leader.
