- Falkner's National Party is here to stay, following fantastic local Sämlings election results
Many were quick to write off Viktor Falkner and his National Party following this year's general election. He, however, promised to return in full swing. Tonight, he has been vindicated!
Across Alrodey, elections for local Sämlings took place, to elect 89 members of the island's 6 local Sämlings. Here are the overall results:
Sämling - Overall Control
Ashing Sämling - Hung (National Party as largest party)
Bergen Sämling - Hung (National Party as largest party)
Fletchay Sämling - National Party
Honsting Sämling - Worker's Party of Alrodey
Seelandt Sämling - Liberal and Democratic Party Alliance
Stormholt Sämling - National Party
The National Party has swept across Alrodey, winning in key marginal seats like Ashington Turrick South, Walden At-Large, Olesten West, Gilead West, Suidlandt At-Large and others. Overall, Viktor Falkner's party has won 38 seats, followed by 20 for the Worker's Party and 20 for the Liberal and Democratic Party Alliance. "When this results are repeated at the general election, the National Party will take again its rightful place as Alrodey's natural party of government" said Mr. Falkner.
By contrast, it has been yet another disappointing night for the Worker's Party, who has lost a lot of ground to both the National Party and the Liberals. Sealandt, for example, should be an easy victory for Edward Weatherill's party. Yet, it was won by the Liberals. Honsting, another socialist stronghold, was almost won by the National Party too. The former Prime Minister Weatherill has refused to comment on the results.
The election cycle for electing Alrodey's six Premiers, one for each elected local Sämling, is expected within a week. Our eyes are on Ashing and Bergen, as the only two local Sämling without overall control. The National Party has the greatest number of seats in both chambers.
