The membership’s desire for change and renewal has been heard. The NDP Federal Council met in the afternoon of Sunday, April 10th  to initiate the process to determine the next steps towards a leadership election.

In the months ahead, we will work tirelessly with our members to renew, rebuild, and strengthen this great party of ours.

We want to thank Tom Mulcair for his tireless work on behalf of our party, and all Canadians.

Millions of Canadians are counting on us to stand up to powerful interests and fight to even the odds for them. That’s exactly what we will do.

This convention has shown that New Democrats are dynamic, energized and strongly invested in renewing the party.

The next chapter begins today (this April 10th). New Democrats will now move forward, united, together.
