General Election Results - 9 February 2007

General elections were held in Turks and Caicos Islands on 9 February 2007, following dissolution of Parliament on 12 January 2007.

Two parties contested the election – Progressive National Party (PNP) and the People's Democratic Movement (PDM).

Nomination Day was on Monday, 22 January 2007. A total of 31 candidates contested the election. The two major parties each presented a full slate of 15 candidates. There was also one independent candidates.

The Progressive National Party (PNP), led by Galmo Williams, held 13 seats, and the People’s Democratic Movement (PSM), led by Floyd Seymour, held two seats.  For the first time an appointed member was given the portfolio of Minister of Education.

On 14 August 2009, the British Government partially suspended parts of the Constitution.  The suspension resulted from the findings of a Commission of Inquiry that there was a "high probability of systemic corruption and/or other serious dishonesty involving past and present elected Members of the House of Assembly and others in recent years." Because of the partial suspension, the Governor has now taken control of the government of the Turks & Caicos Islands including all the former responsibilities of TCI government ministers.  The House of Assembly was also immediately dissolved.  An Advisory Council was appointed and made up of The Governor, Deputy Governor, Chief Executive, the Attorney General and the Permanent Secretary, Finance and seven other "nominated members" who are all belongers (broadly, TCI citizens) chosen by the Governor.

Voter turnout was 86.02%.

The first meeting of the new Parliament was held on Friday, 23 February 2007.
