Election Result: Buckingham

Buckingham has its first new MP for 22 years and the first MP representing a political party since 2009.

Greg Smith has been elected in the Buckingham constituency replacing Speaker of the House Jon Bercow.

He won 58.4% of the vote with 37,035 votes.

Second place was Lib Dem Stephen Dorrell with 16,624 votes with David Morgan second with 7,638 votes, 12% of the vote. 

Former MP Jon Bercow was elected in 1997 and was made Speaker in 2009, so this is the first time Buckingham has had a party political MP since then.
