There seems to be no connection between the numbers and the seats they are calling, that makes it a bit boring. One was called with the opponent ahead and one on 0% reported..

But 2-1 to DLP now.

Yeah, they called a seat for a incumbent who was trailing by 20 points with 50% in, and the incumbent only won by 2 points last election. Odd.

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

Barbados also has a Bolivarian vs. social democrat political system, I believe.

UWP is centre-right, despite the name. It was never Social Democratic. It was founded by disgruntled businessmen with basis in the local Rotary Club in 1988 to allow off-shore exploration and lower taxes. Also gave asylum to some dubious business types when in power.

DLP are still pretty standard SocDem in their policies, despite cooperating with Venezuela and getting some free stuf, like tablets to school children and help with harbour improvement.

The second Indie Jerome Peter Lavashire is the VP for the Small Business Association, so not another left winger.

Things seem to be even more complicated at the moment... This article says the leftists are dropping DLP and going to UWP because they feel it has betrayed its left wing roots.

"These influencers have since been sidelined by the party which has lost its soul and has become a hollow shadow of what it was meant to be ... And, in what some see as apostasy, those from the left are leaving in droves and are now throwing their support behind the UWP."

11-5

Ian Douglass beat his leftist cousin in Portsmouth. UWP lost again, but are already ahead of their 2009 result (3 seats). Both Lennox Linton and former UWP chairman Hector John are in.

EDIT: Lavashire also lost to a DLP guy, so no Indie MPs.

14-5

UWP won 2 by-elections in 2010, so they just keep their seats. They won two urban/partly urban seats in Roseau in the south (central + north) and a rural belt across the lower northern part of the island (Salisbury, Marigot, Wesley).

15-6

UWP also got Roseau South, so the whole urban area, down there.

So +1 to the opposition.

Manasseh Sogavare has been elected Prime Minister in the Solomon Islands. He got 31 votes out of 50, so he had the 27 he claimed + four additional independents.

He has a lot of economic credentials on paper as former Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Finance, Commissioner of Inland Revenue, Director of the Central Bank and Chairman of the Solomon Islands National Provident Fund, but he hasn't really delivered the two previous times he got the chance.
