Politics

The Maples became a riding just over 20 years ago. It was a Liberal riding for its first decade and has been NDP for the last decade.

The NDP held on here easily in 2007 despite some party infighting that saw then incumbent MLA Chris Aglugub defeated for the NDP nomination by Mohinder Saran.

The discord had other parties thinking they might step in for the win, but Saran won by more than 1,700 votes.

 

2007 results

Mohinder Saran, NDP 3,617

Lou Fernandez, PC 1,895

Pritam Bar, LIB 928

Turnout: 55.05 per cent
