Carla Compton is unofficially the new MLA for the Winnipeg riding of Tuxedo.

Compton broke a 43-year Tory stranglehold of the riding by winning a by-election for the governing NDP on Tuesday, finishing about 600 votes ahead of PC candidate Lawrence Pinsky.

Jamie Pfau of the Liberals and Green Party leader Janine Gibson finished well back in third and fourth respectively.

The by-election was required after former Premier Heather Stefanson resigned as MLA earlier this year. 

Results are not considered official until they are verified on Friday by the returning officer.
