Business leaders in the Canadian province of Ontario will closely watch new premier-elect Doug Ford for signs the populist conservative can deliver on his pledge to boost economic growth and lower the cost of operating in the country's most populous province.
The Progressive Conservatives won 76 ridings, while the NDP got 40.
To say last night's Ontario election was a rollercoaster would be an understatement.
"I'm very grateful to the people of Ontario", Ford said as he left his mother's house Thursday evening on his way to PC election headquarters at the Toronto Congress Centre.
Ford claims he will reduce taxes and keep more money in everyone's pockets. "We aren't going to flip-flop", he said.
Voters appeared to agree, buying instead into Ford's promises to cut taxes and rein in government spending by finding billions in unspecified waste - something Horwath failed to effectively counter.
"Some of the deep clamour for change emerged simply from the fact that the Liberals had governed for 15 years - a lengthy stretch for any political party", said Cristine de Clercy, a political science professor at Western University in southern Ontario.
That's the Election Day mix in California's high-stakes primary on Tuesday, and it means the results in some key races could take days - or even weeks - to determine.
People don't have to wait until election day to vote.
Ford succeeds Kathleen Wynne, a five-year incumbent who conceded last week that she was headed for defeat.
'A little hope': Nadal vs Thiem in French Open final He needed two days to get it done after rain suspended play on Thursday when they were locked in the first-set tiebreaker. That crucial early juncture altered the course of things, though. "I just enjoy the fact that I am here again".
Wynne has declined to say whether she'll stay on as party leader, but many expect her to step down.
A tearful Kathleen Wynne stepped down as Ontario's Liberal leader Thursday as the party she propelled to a majority government only four years ago was reduced to a skeleton crew, losing official status in the legislature.
He pointed as examples to Scarborough Guildwood, where Liberal Mitzie Hunter squeaked by PC Party candidate Roshan Nallaratnam by a mere 81 votes, as well as Wynne's narrow victory over PC Party candidate John Kieran.
"I also want to congratulate Andrea Horwath and the NDP for forming the Official Opposition and sending a strong team to Queen's Park", Dillon went on to say. Other Voter Service and Polling Centers will open at a later date.
There are two big firsts as well, with the Green party electing a candidate for the first time.
Ford also emphasised ties with the federal government saying he spoke with Justin Trudeau and told the Prime Minister he stood with him in a trade dispute with the United States. This campaign has been as left wing as they come, a veritable socialist plethora of spend, spend, spend promises: free drugs, free childcare, free dental care, renationalize Hydro One. They have not held power in Ontario since 1995.
His campaign proved that, when the drive to dump the incumbent and all things status quo goes visceral with voters, there's no need for a lot of campaign substance.
Doug Ford was widely criticized for a failed campaign to scrap a long-planned redevelopment on the city's waterfront, proposing a huge ferris wheel, a new mall and a monorail.
Ford - a businessman who rails against the elite and regularly peppers his speeches and interviews with boasts and falsehoods - is the brother of Rob Ford, the former Toronto mayor who made headlines around the world after he admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in office.
The announcement boosted shares in United States component makers including Acacia Communications, Oclaro and Lumentum Holdings. The company will also have to keep a team of "compliance coordinators" for the next 10 years, which will be selected by the DoC.

Days after igniting a trade war, Donald Trump declared Saturday that he wants a world free of all tariffs and trade barriers. According to reports , the other leaders were taken aback by the suggestions and not sure how serious Trump was about it.
Trump is issuing a stern warning to foreign countries not to retaliate against USA tariffs on the imports of steel and aluminum. Trump is painting a highly inaccurate tariff picture - wrongly suggesting everyone else has high tariffs while U.S. has none.
