After 2019 Federal Election, Chief Electoral Officer of Canada Stéphane Perrault announced judicial recount of the votes in three Electoral District in Canada.
The judicial recounting was set to be held in the electoral district of Hochelaga (Quebec) on Nov. 4; Quebec (Quebec) on Nov. 5, and Port Moody–Coquitlam (British Columbia) on Nov. 6, 2019.
However, the judicial recounting in all three electoral districts have been terminated following requests for withdrawal by the candidates who requested the recount.
Elections Canada announced that the termination of those proceedings does not affect the results for the electoral districts, which were validated before the recount began.
Accordingly, Nelly Shin obtained 16,855 votes in the electoral district in Port Moody–Coquitlam and she beat Bonita Zarrillo by 153 votes difference.
Zarrillo spent five years as a councillor for the city of Coquitlam. She ran for this election following MP Fin Donnelly who announced his retirement late last year.
In Quebec, Jean-Yves Duclos won with 18,047 votes in the electoral district in Québec and Soraya Martinez Ferrada won by 18,008 votes in the electoral district of Hochelaga.
