Leftists Win Main Provinces, Conservatives Win Most Provinces in Uruguay Poll

MONTEVIDEO – The preliminary count in Uruguay’s national regional elections puts the conservative National Party back in control of 12 provinces, while the ruling leftist Broad Front will govern six provinces including the most populous, Montevideo and Canelones.

The Colored Party held on in only one of its two provinces, Rivera.

According to figures released by the electoral court Monday, the National Party has won in Artigas, Soriano, Colonia, Flores, San Jose, Tacuarembo, Durazno, Florida, Cerro Largo, Treinta y Tres, Lavalleja and Maldonado.

The Broad Front retained control over Montevideo, home to more than half of Uruguay’s 3.4 million people, and Canelones, the second most populated province, together with Rocha, Salto, Paysandu and Rio Negro.

Close results in three of these small provinces could lead to an unexpected coalition playing the determining role in the formation of the next national government, once the final count is done.

“Relatively small differences can have a significant impact on outcomes, like in the case of Salto, Paysandu and Rio Negro, where the Broad Front has won in the preliminary count,” the Vice president of the Electoral Court of Uruguay, Wilfredo Penco, told Efe.

The final count will review all ballot papers and correct errors.
