Elections Manitoba says votes are still being counted and results reported to them, but it is having trouble getting the results out. Elections Manitoba is looking into what has happened with its data and website. The CTV News Decision Desk says this is an unusual situation, and one reason for why results are rolling in slower than anticipated.

10:09 p.m.

Speaking to CTV News about the split of the vote in Manitoba, panellist Royce Koop says the Tories have not dropped a huge amount of votes.

“They are not far behind the NDP, but what we see in Winnipeg is the NDP winning in every single seat except for maybe three, or four, or five,” he says.

“This story tonight I think is not a story of Tory collapse. Tories are actually holding onto their votes. What it is, is it is a story of the electoral system and the NDP having an extraordinarily efficient vote in this election.”

Speaking to CTV News about Green Party support in Manitoba, panelist Michael Redhead Champagne says it is a difficult situation.

“I think it bodes well for the democracy of Manitoba for us to have a lot of different options when it comes to going to the polls so that our differences of opinions and ideas on how to make the world better can be reflected there.

Unfortunately, not having a strong Green or even a strong Liberal option, really does narrow the opportunities we have as citizens of Manitoba to have our own voices heard and respected.”
