A date for a byelection in the provincial riding of Saskatoon Meewasin hasn’t been set, but one person has already declared his intentions to seek the nomination for the NDP.
In a Facebook post, Ryan Meili indicates he will seek the nomination.
Meili has unsuccessfully tried twice to become the party’s leader losing to Dwain Lingenfelter in 2009 and Cam Broten in 2012.
Meili says he is not using this to try and set himself up for a 3rd run at the leadership.
The seat in Saskatoon Meewasin became vacant when Saskparty MLA Roger Parent died of cancer last month.
In the last provincial election, Parent won the riding, but it was only by a margin of just over 500 votes over the NDP’s Nicole White.
