Timor-Leste Parliamentary Election Provisional Result as at 8.00pm 07 July 2012
The graph of the provisional results of counting shows CNRT with 34,233 votes; FRETILIN with 25,499 and the Democratic Party with 9,177.
CNRT has been in a coalition majority in the East Timor parliament since the last election in 2007. If this coalition persists after this election, there is very little chance that the FRETILIN party will regain power.
None of the many other new parties have managed any significant proportion of the vote.
Based on these provisional results, it is most likely that the CNRT coaltion will retain power; possibly without the need for any coaltion partners and that FRETILIN will remain in opposition.
