Brad Wall and the Saskatchewan Party are one step closer to dynasty territory, sweeping to a majority government victory for a third consecutive term.

It was another resounding victory for the Sask. Party leading in five and elected in 44 ridings with 63 per cent of the popular vote.

With three new constituencies for a total of 61, the Sask. Party will come out with 49 seats, which is the same number they held going into the election.

The NDP could potentially pick up an extra two ridings, elected in seven and leading in four for a total of 11 seats. Just before 10 p.m. several urban ridings remained in a tight split in Regina and Saskatoon.

Wall was the first candidate to be officially elected in his home riding of Swift Current.

In a surprise twist, the constituency of Saskatoon Westview has become a race to watch. NDP leader Cam Broten is in a tight race with the Sask. Party's David Buckingham pulling slightly ahead.

Results are still coming in, and you can see them live on our election map.

The Sask. Party campaigned on its record for building the economy, asking voters to “keep Saskatchewan strong”. The Sask. Party made very few spending promises on the campaign trail.

Highlights of the Sask. Party platform include: increasing spending on highways by $70 million over four years, reducing hospital administration spending to redirect funds to frontline workers, and selling some public liquor stores.

The NDP campaigned on promises to hire more nurses, teachers and educational assistants, scrap Lean in health care facilities and to review all P3 projects underway.
