Progressive Conservative Party candidate Ralph Eichler easily won re-election in the Lakeside constituency.
The Teulon resident defeated NDP candidate Dan Rugg, of Elie, and Ilsa Regelsky, representing the Manitoba Liberal Party.
"I’m feeling very positive. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my constituents," Eichler said on election night.
Eichler, 69, is beginning his fifth term in provincial office. In the last provincial government, he served as agriculture minister.
Changes to Lakeside’s boundaries added St. Francois Xavier, Springstein, Elie, St. Eustache and Poplar Point to the constituency.
Eichler said he looks forward to being able to finish some of the work he started under Brian Pallister’s government, including working to generate more investment in Manitoba’s agricultural industry.
Final voting results weren’t available at this time.
