Notley to run for premier again: NDP seeking candidates for 2023 provincial election

The Alberta NDP has made a call for nominations for the 2023 election.

Candidates seeking a nomination to run can put their name forward, starting this week.

“We are gearing up for the 2023 election and part of that work involves finding Albertans who are committing to building a future for this province,” said Brandon Stevens, party provincial secretary.

“We are committed to undoing the damage and distrust from Jason Kenney and the UCP. We are committed to creating jobs, growing the economy, reducing poverty and properly funding and supporting public healthcare and education.”

Candidates that submit their name will undergo a vetting process.

“We have been getting a flurry of interest from people who want to get involved,” Stevens said. “We out-fundraised the UCP last year, we are gearing up for our online Convention in June. We have momentum and beginning the process to find candidates is an extension of that work.”

Rachel Notley will take another run for premier and the party is looking for 88 dedicated candidates.

Those interested in seeking a nomination can go online at albertaNDP.ca.
