NI Local Government: results at a glance

As Nicholas said, “This is an election with few dramatic changes.”

But, for the record, here are the %s of all the first preference votes from the Northern Ireland Local Government elections. [Updated 462 of 462 seats allocated]

Party 1st Pref. +/-*  Seats

   DUP  23.1%  -4.1%  130
   SF  24.1%  -0.7%  105
   UUP  16.1%  +0.9%  88
   SDLP  13.6%  -1.4%  66
   Others  16.5%  +6.1%  41
   Alliance  6.7%  -0.7%  32

*Comparison with First Preference Share in 2011

What drama there is would seem to be focused on the apparent rise of the “others” – including, but not exclusively, the TUV, and the Independent republicans.
