ANDREA GEARY

Ian Wishart (PC) has been re-elected in Portage la Prairie.

Portage la Prairie voters have returned Ian Wishart to office for a third term.

NDP candidate Andrew Podolecki and Liberal Party candidate Charles Huband proved to be no contest for Wishart, 65.

Wishart captured 3,791 votes, with Podolecki a distant second with 1,342, with 42 out of 46 polls reporting on election night.

"Certainly I’m very honoured to be elected to represent Portage for the coming term," Wishart said adding that he feels there is more work to be done by the government.

For the past two years, he has served as Minister of Education and Training.

With the government’s commission on K to 12 education still underway, Wishart, who is a commission member, said the report will be presented to the provincial government in December.
