The only district that won’t be sworn in is St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi, which is subject to a recount. Liberal John Abbott finished ahead of NDP leader Alison Coffin by 53 votes in the official results. But the NDP has made allegations in court documents about potentially thousands of ballots either being improperly counted or improperly rejected.
