The Chimpanzee Cooperative Federation earned opposition party status winning 102 seats. Monkey Layton will be the leader of the official opposition.
The Liberal Monkey Party won only 34 seats. The result was a humiliation for the party and its leader Monkey Iggy.

When the campaign had started, the Liberal Monkeys were confident that they would head a coalition government with the CCF.
The Bloc Baboon won only 4 seats. Monkey Savard, the Bloc Baboon leader, resigned. The poor showing was a jolt to the Baboon separatist movement.

At Sensible Monkey election headquarters, Prime Minister-elect Monkey Harper said that Monkey voters have decided to adopt the sensible economic policies of the Wuxi China Expat humans and aliens like Mango and Gorzo.
