Statement from Official Opposition Leader Ryan Meili

Today I’m asking the New Democratic Party of Saskatchewan to hold a leadership race. When a new leader is selected, I will step aside to make room for that new voice. 

I am very grateful for the support, first and foremost of my family. Mahli, Abe and Gus have been beside me through the good times and the bad. I am thankful to the voters of Saskatoon Meewasin and to NDP members for their support.  And I’m encouraged to see so many, as recent polls are showing, who are seeing through the deception of the Sask. Party and turning to support our party, who are seeking a better vision for Saskatchewan’s future.
