Canada's Liberal Party has decisively won parliamentary elections, ending nine years of Conservative rule, partial results show.

The Liberals, led by Justin Trudeau, are leading in 189 electoral districts.

The son of late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau is now poised to form a majority government, Canada's CBC and CTV networks predict.

Incumbent Conservative PM Stephen Harper - whose party is leading in 102 districts - accepted defeat.

Speaking after the polls closed, he said he had already congratulated Mr Trudeau, saying the Conservatives would accept the results "without hesitation".

His party said Mr Harper would resign as leader of the Conservatives.

Meanwhile, the left-leaning New Democratic Party (NDP) looks set to lose a third of the 54 seats it held in the last parliament, according to CBC.

"I congratulated Mr Trudeau on his exceptional achievement," said NDP leader Tom Mulcair.

To form a majority government, a party needs 170 seats in the 338-member parliament.

Stephen Harper's final stand?
'Sea of change'

Voting hours were staggered across the country and polls opened in Newfoundland at 08:30 local time (11:00 GMT). Polls closed in the west of the country at 19:00 (02:00 GMT).

t was one of the longest and possibly closest election campaigns in Canada's history, with leaders criss-crossing the country to try to sway undecided voters.

Early counts in the eastern provinces gave the Liberals their first taste of victory, as they led in all 32 races there.

As the results began pouring in, former Conservative Justice Minister Peter MacKay said: "A sea of change here. We are used to high tides in Atlantic Canada. This is not what we hoped for."

The Conservatives are now in danger of losing all 13 seats they held in Atlantic Canada in 2011.

In a remarkable turnaround, the Liberals - who held only 36 seats before the election - are now expected to form a majority cabinet.
