Danielle Smith and the United Conservative Party (UCP) will form the next provincial government. 

At the time of publishing, the UCP hold 49 of the 87 seats in the legislature. 

"My oath is to serve all Albertans, no matter how you voted," said Smith. "I will work every day to listen, improve, and demonstrate to you that I can be trusted to improve on the issues you care so deeply about." 

This was the first general election win for Smith. She took over as leader of the UCP following the resignation of Jason Kenney in May of last year. 

"I invite all Albertans, regardless of who you supported in this election to reach out to me with your ideas and concerns." 

Rachel Notley, the leader of the Alberta New Democrat Party (NDP), will serve as the leader of the official opposition for the next four years. Notley called Smith to concede the election on Monday night. 

"As a movement, we have grown our support in every corner of this province. I'm very pleased that we will be welcoming at least 10 more MLAs to our caucus," Notley addressed supporters in Edmonton.

"However, tonight, I also know that we are all deeply disappointed in the overall result." 

The campaign leading up to this point was anything but smooth for both parties. The NDP focused on Smith's controversial past, while the UCP took aim at Notley's economic deficiencies. 

In the end, the UCP did lose some seats to the NDP in this election, but not enough to lose control. Early results expect Alberta's two-party legislature to continue -- the Alberta Liberals and Alberta Party failed to pick up any seats for the second consecutive election. 

All election results are unofficial until June 8.
