There are now five candidates in the leadership race for the Saskatchewan Party.
MLA Ken Cheveldayoff, the Minister of Parks, Culture and Sport will be stepping down from his ministerial position as he aims to replace Premier Brad Wall as the party’s leader.
Cheveldayoff believes mistakes were made in the Global Transportation Hub purchase, and he wants to sell the GTH.
Cheveldayoff released some initial details of his platform, focusing on the agricultural sector. He says that he grew up on the farm in Blaine Lake, and feels he is best for both rural and urban Saskatchewan.
Cheveldayoff joins Gord Wyant, Jeremy Harrison, Tina Beaudry-Mellor and Alanna Koch as candidates to replace Premier Brad Wall on January 27.
Scott Moe also resigned as Environment Minister and is expected to join the race later this week.
In an email from the provincial government on Monday, Moe stated he will make an announcement in the coming days.
