On Friday at 10:00am, the official vote results of the 2015 Saba Elections were presented by Governor Jonathan Johnson. The presentation was given in the courtroom of the government building. This writes The Daily Herald.
The results are as follows:
The Windward Island People’s Movement (WIPM) party 545 votes
Saba Labour Party (SLP) 407 votes.
The vote counts of the individual WIPM candidates are:
Bruce Zagers 187 votes
Christopher Johnson 145 votes
Rolando Wilson 71 votes
Eviton Heyliger 56 votes
Carl Buncamper 35 votes
Vito Charles 27 votes.
For the SLP the vote counts of the individual WIPM candidates are:
Monique Wilson 121 votes
Ishmael Levenstone 89 votes
Steve Hassell 61 votes
Augustino Martin 34 votes
Stanley Peterson 32 votes
Enrico Klaber 22 votes.
Because Monique Wilson received a higher voting count than 50 per cent of the voting quota, she moved up the list to first place before Levenstone.
A total of four votes were blank and 10 votes were announced as invalid. In total, 952 people voted on Wednesday. Since the total number of seats in the Island Council is five, the quota for receiving a seat was calculated at 190.4. This meant that each party received two seats, and that the remaining seat went, according to the voting rules, to the WIPM party, as they obtained the highest number of votes.
