Sask NDP :Leadership Race - Part III
The previous thread having reached 100 posts, I launch the next thread with this article from the Leader-Post:
There's only one declared candidate in the race for NDP leader but some potential contenders are inching closer to the starting line while others are turning away.
Regina lawyer Dion Tchorzewski, son of the late NDP stalwart Ed, had been mulling a run but said Tuesday he's decided not to be a leadership candidate.
But Saskatoon family doctor Ryan Meili, one of the founders of the Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health (SWITCH) program, confirmed he is considering running for the leadership of the party, which has sat in Opposition to the Saskatchewan Party government since the 2007 provincial election.
Other MLAs who have said they are considering a run are Frank Quennell, Len Taylor and Deb Higgins. None returned phone calls this week. Former finance minister Andrew Thomson did not return a message.
Regina lawyer Yens Pedersen, who has temporarily stepped down as NDP president as he contemplates a run, said he has not yet made a decision.
