The counting of the votes cast in East Timor’s legislative elections on Saturday confirmed the municipal numbers that gave Aliança de Mudança para o Progresso (Alliance for Change and Progress – MP) the absolute majority with 34 of the 65 seats in parliament.
The final figures, which still have to be certified by the Appeal Court, mean AMP won 309,663 votes, or 49.6% of the total, giving them the 34 seats.
Fretilin, which led a minority coalition in the current government, came second with 213,324 votes (34.2%), keeping the same number of MPs, 23.
The Partido Democrático (PD) – Fretilin’s partner in the 7th Government, lost 2 MPs as it only got 50,370 votes or 8.1% of the total.Source: Lusa
