CALGARY — Alberta’s Opposition Wildrose party is bumping up its leadership convention in case Premier Jim Prentice calls an election before the party has a permanent leader in place.
Wildrose president Jeff Callaway says the attendees at a members assembly in Calgary over the weekend overwhelmingly supported moving up the date from June 6.
After the meeting, he says the executive committee voted to move the leadership selection to sometime at the end of March.
Callaway says the party has a few details to iron out before announcing a firm date, but he says he hopes to know for sure by Tuesday afternoon.
Premier Jim Prentice has not ruled out calling an early election this spring despite a law mandating it be held in 2016.
