Ryan Meili, New Democratic Party MLA for Saskatoon Meewasin, has announced he will be running for leadership of the Saskatchewan NDP.
Meili said he’s excited for what’s to come, saying in a release:
“This leadership contest is our chance to develop the kind of healthy politics that works for Saskatchewan people. I am excited to be a part of that process. I look forward to speaking with and working alongside longtime party members, recently mobilized voters, and community builders across the province to build the inspiring and effective movement we need. In the coming months, we will formally launch our campaign. In the meantime, we’re inviting anyone inspired by the vision of a healthier society and interested in helping to make it a reality to join the conversation.”
The next leader of the Saskatchewan NDP will be elected at a convention of party members on May 6, 2018.
