Work will begin soon for the Saskatchewan Party in order to start the procedure to replace Brad Wall.
Wall, who has been the leader of the Saskatchewan Party since 2004 and Premier since 2007, says the time is right for this move to be made
Executive Director Patrick Bundrock says the party’s Provincial Council will meet in the next 30 days to work out all the details.
“This includes the convention date,” Bundrock said. “Location, nomination and filing fees, voting system, membership sales, deadlines and campaign expense limits.”

A Chief Electoral Officer and Leadership Election Organizing Committee will also be appointed. Bundrock stresses you don’t have to be an MLA to join the race.
“Any member in good standing with the Saskatchewan Party can put their name forward,” Bundrock said.
The Council will also appoint a Chief Electoral Officer and a leadership organizational committee to oversee the campaign process.
Brad Wall’s Swift Current riding will also become vacant, so there will also have to be a by-election.
