The 2019 Prince Edward Island general election was held on April 23, 2019[2] to elect 26 of 27 members of the 66th General Assembly of Prince Edward Island in Atlantic Canada. The vote for the member from Charlottetown-Hillsborough Park was cancelled due to the death of the Green Party's candidate with a by-election to be held no later than July 19, 2019.[3][a] However, Charlottetown-Hillsborough Park still voted in a referendum on electoral reform.

The Progressive Conservatives under new leader Dennis King won twelve seats to form a minority government. The Greens under leader Peter Bevan-Baker won eight seats to form the Opposition. The Liberals under Premier Wade MacLauchlan were reduced to six seats and MacLauchlan lost in his own district. The Progressive Conservatives' share of the popular vote was steady at 37%, the Green Party enjoyed a 20 point increase to 31%, and the Liberals' share dropped 11 points to 30%. The Greens won several seats in or near the two cities of Charlottetown and Summerside, while the Progressive Conservatives took several more rural seats from the Liberals.

A referendum on electoral reform that asked Islanders if they wished to adopt a mixed-member proportional representation voting system was held in conjunction with the election. The initiative failed to pass in at least 60% of the districts as required under provincial legislation to proceed. About 51% of voters voted to stay with the current first-past-the-post voting system while 49% voted for the proposed change.

The election results represented the first time since the 1890 Prince Edward Island general election that the province elected a minority government,[5] the first time in the province's history that a significant number of voters turned to a third party besides the dominant Liberals and Progressive Conservatives, and the first time that a Green Party reached official opposition status in any Canadian legislature.[6]

Background[edit]

Under the provisions of the Prince Edward Island Elections Act, an election was required by the fixed date of October 7, 2019, unless it was called earlier.[7] After months of speculation of an early election call,[8] Premier Wade MacLauchlan announced the election at a rally on March 26.[9]

In the previous election, on May 4, 2015, the Liberal Party, led by Premier Wade MacLauchlan, was re-elected to a majority government, earning election in 18 out of the 27 ridings (and down 2 from their pre-election total). The official opposition Progressive Conservatives, under leader Rob Lantz, increased its seat count from 3 before the election to 8, despite Lantz losing in Charlottetown-Brighton. Meanwhile, the Green Party, under leader Peter Bevan-Baker, won its first ever seat, Bevan-Baker's, in Kellys Cross-Cumberland.[10] The NDP were unable to win a seat, continuing their streak of being shut out of the legislature since 2000.

Despite the increase in the Progressive Conservatives' seat count, on September 23 of that year, Lantz stepped down as leader.[11] Since Lantz's departure, The Progressive Conservatives held two leadership elections: one on October 20, 2017, selecting MLA James Aylward as their leader; and again on February 9, 2019, choosing Dennis King as their new leader following Aylward's announcement on September 27, 2018 his intention to resign when his successor was chosen.
