Regina lawyer Yens Pedersen will run for the NDP in an upcoming byelection in Regina Northeast.
He beat out four others at a nomination meeting in Regina last night.
Pedersen says the byelection, which has not been officially been called, will be a great chance for people in the riding to send a message to the Sakatchewan Party that they are tired of their mismanagement.
Earlier this year, Sasktchewan Party MLA Kevin Doherty announced he would leaving the seat as he leaves the political arena to pursue an opportunity with an Alberta consulting firm.
A byelection must be called within six months of his resignation.
