Federal Conservatives set date for Leadership Election

The Conservative Party of Canada’s organizing committee met in Toronto last weekend and set May 27, 2017, as the leadership election date.

The committee has yet to decide other rules for the race, but will do so and make further announcements in the coming weeks, according to the party’s release.

Individuals must hold a party membership in order to vote. The party is encouraging everyone interested to either purchase or renew their memberships to ensure they’re eligible. The release didn’t specify a cutoff date for membership sales, which are key to the campaign of any candidate looking to win the leadership by expanding the party’s base beyond existing loyalists.
