Saskatchewan New Democrats will elect a new leader at their leadership convention on March 3, 2018, at the Delta Hotel in Regina.
The two candidates vying for the top spot — Trent Wotherspoon and Ryan Meili — have been in leadership races before.
Regina-Rosemont MLA Wotherspoon was first elected as an MLA in 2007 and ran an unsuccessful bid for party leadership in 2013. He was chosen as interim leader for the party in 2016, before resigning to pursue a permanent run last June.
Meili, a former family doctor, helped the Saskatchewan NDP take Saskatoon-Meewasin in a byelection a year ago. The seat was previously held by Sask. Party MLA Roger Parent, who died from cancer in November 2016.
Meili ran for party leadership in 2009 and 2013, finishing second both times.
Regina- Douglas Park MLA Nicole Sarauer has been interim party leader since June 2017.
