Sask Party memberships have nearly tripled over the past few months, from about 95-hundred prior to Premier Wall’s announcement to step down, to a total of just over 27-thousand
And each member will be eligible to vote in the upcoming leadership election, scheduled for January. 27.
Patrick Bundrock is the Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Party. He says this is a significant event in Saskatchewan and says the executive is working to ensure things go smoothly for the change in power.
He says the deadline for members to return their mail-in ballots to the Sask. Party is January 26th at 5 p.m adding the party is moving forward for the leadership convention at the end of the month.
“We’re very comfortable with where we are at,” Bundrock said. “There’s always those last-minte things that need to be attended to. But I’m happy to say that those are few and far between and we are on track to have a great day.”
But Bundrock says it’s time for a gentle reminder for the new members to cast their mail-in ballots for the January 27th vote.
“It’s a very significant event,” Bundrock said. “The entire time I have been active in the Saskatchewan Party, it’s been under Premier Wall. I mean, talk about renewal and historic change coming.”
Members will also have the opportunity vote in-person at the leadership convention on January 27 at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon.
