Cam Guthrie's competitor has conceded the election.

Aggie Mlynarz took to the stage around 9:40 p.m. at the Red Papaya restaurant to concede after Guthrie was up by  5,500 votes with 31 of 46 polls counted.

In the 2014 election Guthrie earned 19,672 votes, 5,498 more than runner-up Karen Farbridge.

Guthrie arrived early at the Holiday Inn, where supporters gathered and a live band played as the results came in on a big screen.

More to come.
