Halifax-Nova Scotia NDP officially elected a new leader at the party convention in Halifax.
Claudia Cender, who wasn’t opposed after the online party vote that began last Monday, officially won the title.
A 45-year-old former lawyer was first elected in 2017 to represent Equestrian in Dartmouth South.
Cender was the house leader of the parliamentary party when he proclaimed the legislature in February.
She will replace Gary Burrill, who announced in November last year that she would resign after leading the New Democratic Party in February 2016.
The NDP, which has not been in power in Nova Scotia since 2013, finished third in the last two state elections and currently holds six seats in a 55-seat parliament.
This report by Canadian Press was first published on June 25, 2022.
