Regina MLA Trent Wotherspoon was named the Saskatchewan NDP interim leader Saturday afternoon.
The NDP’s provincial council gathered in Saskatoon Saturday morning.
Wotherspoon was selected earlier this month by caucus to be their leader in the assembly.
While he is accepting the role as the interim leader of the party, he has also stated, due to family reasons, that he has no interest in assuming the position on a permanent basis.
It is not known when the NDP will hold a leadership convention.
