The New Democrat Party has won the majority government in The Alberta Election, which means, Rachel Notley will be the new Alberta Premiere. The NDPs have taken a majority government, beating out the Progressive Conservatives and their 44 years of power. The Wildrose Party will be the official opposition, with the PCs taking a third place showing.
As reported by globalnews.ca Progressive Conservative Leader Jim Prentice has resigned as leader of the PCs following the party’s defeat. “Albertans have…chosen our collective future,” said Prentice in his speech Tuesday night. “While I am personally saddened by the decision, the voters are always right in a democracy.” Prentice congratulated Notley and the NDP, and said Notley “ran an excellent campaign and clearly has the confidence of Albertans.” He then announced his resignation as both leader and MLA, effective immediately.
The Bonnyville Cold Lake Constituency was won by Scott Cyr and the Lac La Biche St. Paul Two Hill riding by David Hanson both Wildrose members.
