How will you be ranking your NDP Leadership ballot?

Hi everyone! Laughing

(As of this moment) how would you rank your ballot for the NDP leadership race?


What factors have influenced your decisions?

From the other leadership discussions on Rabble, I am noticing some of the following issues and factors:


- Bilingual (ability to speak both French and English fluently)

- Leadership qualities / charisma of the candidate

- Overall, who can potential get us the best results

- Is the candidate part of the party 'establishment' or not 

- How left-wing is the candidate

NDP leadership 32

Here is a translation of a column about Mulcair and the NDP from Le Journal de Montreal.

Mulcair suspect

By Jean-Jacques Samson

Thomas Mulcair is not a pure-blood socialist. That is his main handicap in the race for the NDP leadership.

Faith in socialist doctrine is as important to the NDP as faith in Québec independence may be to the Parti Québécois.
