NDP candidate Claudia Chender has been elected in the riding of Dartmouth South.
Chender won the seat with 39.6 per cent of the vote.
The riding had no incumbent coming into the election with NDP MLA Marian Mancini announcing she would not be running again for her seat. Mancini was elected in a 2015 byelection after the sudden death of Liberal MLA Allan Rowe. A former Global News anchor, Rowe won the election in 2013. Before Rowe, the riding was held for three consecutive terms by NDP MLA Marilyn More. Prior to More the riding went to all three major political parties, including an almost 20-year stretch under the Progressive Conservatives.
