New UCP leader will be decided in 3 days

The new leader of the UCP party will be revealed Thursday

Alberta is just a few short days away from finding out who the next Premier is.

The results of the governing UCP leadership party contest will be announced on Thursday in Calgary. About 124,000 UCP members were eligible to vote between seven candidates vying for the job. 

The candidate who replaces Jason Kenney as party leader will also take his role at the helm of the Alberta government, which Kenney has maintained since resigning in May rather than the party appointing an interim leader. 

The UCP bylaw says the winning candidate must receive more than 50% of the valid votes cast in a ballot system.
