New Brunswick Election: A Record Number of Women Elected

Monday, Equal Voice was pleased to see a record number of women elected to the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly.

With 14 women elected, 28.5% of the legislature’s 49 seats will now be held by women. This represents a moderate increase from the 2018 election (22%), despite the fact that fewer women ran than in the previous election, with 32.5% of candidates identifying as women, compared to 38.6% in 2018.

Equal Voice congratulates all those who put their name on the ballot, and looks forward to working with the newly elected New Brunswick Legislative Assembly!
