Steve Ashton, Wab Kinew
The leader will be selected at a convention with delegates voting.
Manitoba N-D-P president David Woodbury explains there are three kinds of delegates. First there’ll be those delegates who are elected representatives of their constituencies or the youth organization. Second are delegates from affiliated organizations which are usually labor organizations and third are delegates who come from their provincial council and their elected MPs and MLAs. He adds in any constituency the number of delegates that were chosen was based on their membership but how they were split up was based on the candidate they supported and the share of the vote that the candidate got from members of that constituency.
The next leader of the Manitoba N-D-P will either be Fort Rouge M-L-A Wab Kinew or former Thompson MLA Steve Ashton.
