Party announced it will hold leadership convention on Jan. 28, 2023. Only 1 candidate has come forward so far
The Yukon Liberals official leadership convention was announced over the weekend during the annual leader’s dinner to honour Premier Sandy Silver at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre in Whitehorse.
Party members will cast their vote on Jan. 28, 2023 and find a successor to Silver, who announced in September that he will not seek another mandate as premier and Liberal leader.
Silver previously said he will remain the MLA for Klondike until the next election, after which he will exit politics.
“I think that there is a lot of interest in the position of leadership at the Yukon Liberal Party,” the party’s spokesperson Paolo Gallina told CBC News on Saturday. “I’m encouraged to see who brings their name forward.”
