New Brunswick general election, 1886
The 6th New Brunswick general election
was held on 26 April 1886, to elect 41 members to the 26th New Brunswick Legislative Assembly
, the governing house of the province
of New Brunswick
. The election was held before the adoption of party labels.
In 1883, the Opposition led by Andrew George Blair defeated the government of Daniel L. Harrington in a non-confidence vote which resulted in the government's resignation and Blair being asked to form a government. The 1886 election saw Blair's government returned to office. Of forty-one MLAs, thirty-three supported the government, and eight formed the opposition.
