Sask New Democrats Will Select New Leader In Spring 2013
Saskatchewan New Democrats will choose a new leader early in 2013. The decision to hold a leadership convention in February/March 2013 in Saskatoon was made at a party provincial council meeting this weekend. The exact date of the leadership convention, as well as the official start date of the race, will be announced in the coming weeks.
Similar to the last two conventions, the NDP will use a one-member, one-vote process to select the next leader. Party members will also be able to participate in the leadership selection process in a number of ways including online, by phone, mail-in-ballot or in person at the leadership convention. Anyone with a valid 2013 NDP membership will be able to vote for the new leader.
Previous Leaders of the Saskatchewan NDP were Tommy Douglas, Woodrow Lloyd, Alan Blakeney, Roy Romanow, Lorne Calvert and Dwain Lingenfeler.
