Elected Premier

David Alward
Progressive Conservative Party of New Brunswick

The 37th New Brunswick general election was held on September 27, 2010, to elect 55 members to the 57th New Brunswick Legislative Assembly, the governing house of the province of New Brunswick, Canada. The incumbent Liberal government won 13 seats, while the opposition Progressive Conservatives won a landslide majority of 42 seats in the legislature. As leader of the PC party, David Alward became New Brunswick's 32nd premier.

The Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick – acting on the advice of the Premier – would have originally been able to call an election earlier or as late as 2011; however a bill in the 56th Legislature has fixed election dates to the fourth Monday of September every four years beginning with this election.[1] While an election could still have been called earlier in the event of a vote of no confidence, this did not take place.

With the defeat of Liberals, this election marked the first time in New Brunswick's history that a political party was voted out of office after just one term.[2] The Liberals' 34.42% share of the popular vote marked the party's worst in the province's history.

Target ridings[edit]

The following is a list of ridings which were narrowly lost by the indicated party. For instance, under the Liberal column are the 10 seats in which they came closest to winning from the Conservatives, while under the Conservative column are the 10 seats in which they came closest to winning from the Liberals. Listed is the name of the riding, and the margin, in terms of percentage of the vote, by which the party lost.

These ridings are likely to be targeted by the specified party because the party lost them by a very slim margin in the 2006 election.

Up to 10 are shown, with a maximum margin of victory of 15%. No party or independent candidate, other than the Liberals or Progressive Conservatives, came within 15% of winning any seats.

* Indicates incumbent not running again.

To clarify further; this is a list of provincial general election winners with their party in parentheses, and their margin as a percentage of the vote over the party whose list the seat is on (not the same as the margin of victory if the party potentially "targeting" the seat in that list did not finish second in the previous election). "Won" means that the targeting party won the seat from the incumbent party. "Held" means the incumbent party held the seat.

Liberal Progressive Conservative
  1. Dieppe Centre-Lewisville 0.7%* (won)
  2. Rothesay 1.5% (held)
  3. York 2.4% (held)
  4. Charlotte-Campobello 4.4%* (held)
  5. Saint John Portland 4.6% (held)
  6. Moncton West 4.8%* (won by PCs)
  7. New Maryland-Sunbury West 9.0% (held)
  8. Tracadie-Sheila 10.1% (held)
  9. Moncton Crescent 12.9% (held)
  10. Woodstock 13.0% (held)
  1. Fredericton-Nashwaaksis 2.0% (won)
  2. Bathurst 2.8% (held)
  3. Grand Lake-Gagetown 3.0%* (won)
  4. Fundy-River Valley 3.3% (won)
  5. Moncton North 4.3%* (won by PCs)
  6. Fredericton-Silverwood 6.5% (won)
  7. Nepisiguit 6.9% (won)
  8. Kent 7.0% (held)
  9. Quispamsis 7.3% (won)
  10. Southwest Miramichi 7.6% (won)

The ridings of Moncton East, Moncton West, Restigouche-La-Vallée and Petitcodiac are also likely to be targeted by the Conservatives as all have switched to the Liberals since the 2006 election. Moncton East and Restigouche-La-Vallée were carried by the Liberals in by-elections while the MLAs for Moncton West and Petitcodiac crossed the floor from the PCs to the Liberals.
