This past weekend, Heather Stefanson was chosen as the next leader of Manitoba’s Progressive Conservative party, and by default the province’s 24th Premier after winning the party leadership race by 363 votes over her opponent Shelly Glover. Glover plans to ask the Court of Queen’s Bench to declare the election invalid, suggesting irregularities in the counting of vote, however Stefanson is expected to be sworn in today at 2:00pm CT. RCC anticipates meeting with the new Premier in the weeks ahead.
The next general election is expected in 2023.
