UNC partners Congress of the People and NJAC did not win any of the corporations leaving control of the corporations in the hands of the UNC and PNM.
There are still 56 Aldermen seats to be declared - four for each corporation. The allocation would be based on the votes case in Monday's election using a Proportional Representation model. It's the first time such a system has been used in an election in the country.

The Congress of the People contested seats in five corporations

The EBC reported that 1,036, 721 persons were eligible to vote for the 427 candidates in Monday's election. They represented eight political parties, including three from the People's Partnership - UNC, COP and NJAC - as well as the opposition PNM and the new Independent Liberal Party (ILP). There were also a number of independent candidates for the 136 seats in the 14 corporations.

In the 2010 local government election, the Peoples Partnership
coalition won 99 seats in 11 of the Corporations. In that election only 39 per cent of the eletorate voted.
