Saskatchewan re-elects incumbent premier and party in landslide

NDP’s vote to historic lows

Saskatchewan handed Premier Brad Wall and his right-leaning Saskatchewan Party a record-setting triumph on Monday. Though the victory was expected, the results at the ballot box beat even SaskParty internal polls, with 49 of 58 ridings and 64 per cent of the electorate voting to re-elect the incumbent premier and his party. Support for the NDP, meanwhile, sunk to historic lows, with the party winning only nine seats and 32 per cent of the popular vote. Saskatchewan NDP leader Dwain Lingenfelter resigned on Monday after losing his own seat, the StarPhoenix reports.
