Polls had the SDP and the CDU battling it out, and at one point the CDU was leading in seats. After election day the SDP came through with the most votes, around 25 percent. The SDP hastily began negotiating for a coalition with the Greens, CD and the SLP, but the SLP left discussions. On the 3rd of November, an agreement was reached and a government was made with the SDP, GP and the CD. CD leader Robert Helms was selected to be the Prime Minister.
