The announcement of the results of the 2020 General Election was an abrupt end to five weeks of extraordinary election campaigning in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Around 10:30 pm on Monday 10 August, political leader of the People's National Party (PNM) Dr Keith Rowley declared victory in the polls, claiming 22 seats to the United National Congress' (UNC) 19. 

The PNM lost one seat - Moruga/Tableland - to the UNC. The UNC, in turn, gained the St Augustine seat formerly held by Congress of the People's Prakash Ramadhar.

While the political leader of the UNC, Kamla Persad-Bisessar, has already said she intends to demand a recount of votes in some marginal constituencies, as it stands, the PNM will form the government of Trinidad and Tobago for the next five years.
