Dennis King promises humility, kindness after winning 2nd term as P.E.I. premierDennis King will return for a second term as premier of Prince Edward Island after his Progressive Conservatives won 22 seats for a commanding victory in Monday's provincial election.
The Liberals won three seats and will form the Official Opposition, while the Greens fell to third-party status with just two MLAs.
Voter turnout was a record low of 68.5 per cent of the province's roughly 109,587 registered voters, according to Elections P.E.I.
That's down from the 77.66 per cent seen in 2019, which represented the most votes ever cast in Island history at 83,185, and a sharp drop from the more than 80 per cent turnout that has historically defined Prince Edward Island as a model of political engagement among Canadian provinces.
