After more than a month-long intense election campaign (Ref.*), the election for Ontario provincial legislature (comprising 124 Members of Provincial Parliament or MPPs) was held on June 2, 2022.  Here, in the following, the breakdown of seats won (numbers of MPPs elected) from various political parties to next Ontario legislature (provincial capital Toronto):  

Progressive Conservative (PC) Party (led by Mr. Doug Ford) = 83,

New Democratic Party / NDP (led by Ms. Andrea Horwath) = 31,

Liberal Party (led by Mr. Steven Del Duca) = 8,  

Green Party (led by Mr. Mike Schreiner) = 1,

Independent candidate = 1

As Mr. Doug Ford's PC Party wins a majority (83 seats, more than the required minimum 63 seats to form the Govt. in 124 seat legislature), while himself also winning a seat as MPP, he becomes the next premier (C.M.) of Ontario, the position he also had (as Ontario's premier) in the previous Govt.

While coming second in terms of seats won, the NDP will be the next official Opposition party in Ontario, as was the case in the previous legislature.

Furthermore, as the Liberal Party and NDP failed to secure election victories for their parties and form the next Govt., Mr. Steven Del Duca and Ms. Andrea Horwath (current Liberal Party and NDP leaders, respectively) have decided to quit as leaders of their respective parties.

Obviously, the Liberal Party and the NDP in Ontario will soon look for and elect new leaders who, after securing seats as MPPs for Liberal party and NDP, respectively, will be able to lead their parties (the Liberal Party and the NDP, respectively) in Ontario Legislature.
