Geography

This riding consists of the south-eastern parts of the City of St John’s and the City of Mount Pearl.

History

St. John’s South-Mount Pearl was formerly known as St. John’s South before a redistribution order of 2013.

This riding has flipped parties since 2004. The Tories won the seat in 2004 and 2006 before Liberal Siobhan Coady won in 2008 with the help of an “Anything But Conservative” campaign pushed by then-Premier Danny Williams.

The seat would flip to the NDP when Ryan Cleary defeated Coady by just 949 votes in 2011.
