Saskatchewan NDP head Meili survives leadership review vote

·1 min read

REGINA — Ryan Meili will remain the leader of Saskatchewan's official Opposition after facing a review Saturday.

During the provincial NDP's annual convention, 72 per cent of the delegates voted against having a leadership contest.

As a result, Meili will remain at the party helm.

The other 28 per cent voted in favour of a leadership contest, which would have launched a campaign for someone else to take the party reins.

In total, 446 votes were cast by delegates.

The leadership review is part of the party's convention protocol.
