The 2019 Alberta general election (formally the 30th general election) was held on April 16, 2019, to elect the 87 members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.[2] In its first general election contest, the Jason Kenney-led United Conservative Party won 55.12% of the popular vote and 63 seats, reducing Premier Rachel Notley's governing Alberta New Democratic Party (NDP) to Official Opposition with 24 seats. The United Conservative Party was formed in 2017 from a merger of the Progressive Conservative Party and the Wildrose Party after the NDP's victory in the 2015 election ended nearly 44 years of Progressive Conservative rule.

Two other parties that won seats in the 2015 election, the Alberta Party and the Alberta Liberals, failed to win any seats, making this election the first Alberta general election since 1993 where only two parties won seats.

The Election Act fixes the election date to a three-month period, between March 1 and May 31 in the fourth calendar year after the preceding election day which in this case was May 5, 2015. However, this did not affect the powers of the Lieutenant Governor to dissolve the Legislative Assembly before this period.[3]

Results[edit]

Despite some polls suggesting a closer race might be at hand, the United Conservative Party managed to make a modest improvement in its overall share of the popular vote compared to the combined vote of the Progressive Conservative and Wildrose parties which preceded it. The party became the first in Canadian history outside Ontario and Quebec to poll over one million votes in a provincial general election and won 63 seats. The previous popular vote record of 627,252 was set by the PC's in 2001. The UCP finished no lower than second place in any constituency. UCP leader Jason Kenney easily won in his own riding.

The left-leaning Alberta New Democratic Party lost about one-fifth of its vote share, although due to the considerably higher turnout compared to 2015 it actually gained votes and nearly equalled the PC's 2001 popular vote record. The NDP also became the first governing party in Albertan history to fail to win re-election at least once (the previous shortest-lived government in Albertan history was that of the United Farmers of Alberta which won three consecutive elections) but nevertheless recorded their second-best ever result after their 2015 victory. Other than the post-merger UCP opposition, the NDP with 24 seats will form the largest opposition in the Albertan legislature since 1993. The NDP finished first or second in 85 out of 87 ridings with outgoing premier Rachel Notley easily securing re-election in her own constituency.

No other party elected any MLA's, with the centrist Alberta Party being the only other party to run a full slate of candidates. It more than quadrupled its overall popular vote, but could not overcome the challenges often faced by small parties in a polarized first-past-the-post system and failed to win any seats. All three AP incumbents were defeated, with former leader Greg Clark (the only MLA previously elected under the AP banner) being the only AP candidate to finish as high as second place. Current AP leader Stephen Mandel finished third in his own riding.

The Alberta Liberal Party finished fourth in the overall popular vote, with its vote share plunging by more than three quarters. Despite running considerably more candidates than it did at its historic nadirs in 1971 and 1982, the party received an even lower percentage of the vote compared to those elections. They were shut out of the legislature for the first time since 1982 which was also (coincidentally or not) the last election contested while Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (father of current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau) was in office. Besides overall dissatisfaction with the Liberal brand, the Liberals were hampered by the perception they were competing for largely the same block of voters as the Alberta Party. Liberal Leader David Khan placed fourth in his constituency, which was formerly represented by his retiring predecessor David Swann.

A number of minor parties including several running to the right of the UCP contested the election, but none came close to winning any seats. The Alberta Independence Party (which fielded the most candidates after the UCP, NDP and AP) finished fifth in the overall popular vote. The Freedom Conservative Party finished sixth, although they ran fewer candidates compared to the other parties. On average, FCP candidates polled the most votes outside the three largest parties. The FCP's only incumbent (party founder and leader Derek Fildebrandt), who had been originally elected as a representative for the now defunct Wildrose Party, finished a distant third in his own riding. The Green Party of Alberta finished seventh in the overall popular vote and the Alberta Advantage Party finished eighth.

Five other registered parties fielded a total of eight candidates, including the rump UCP-controlled Progressive Conservative and Wildrose organizations which in order to maintain their registrations each ran a paper candidate in the riding held by incumbent Premier Notley. Somewhat ironically, the best result of any of these candidates was that of the sole PC candidate who despite not campaigning still polled 260 votes and finished fourth out of eleven candidates.

The last time only two parties took all of the seats was in 1993, and the only time before that was in 1913 after the defeat of Socialist Party MLA Charles O'Brien and before the rise of farmer and labour parties. In 2019, aside from UCP and NDP candidates, the only candidates to rank as high as second place were AP incumbent Greg Clark and incumbent MLA Rick Strankman. Previously a UCP MLA, Strankman was running as an independent.

In Alberta's peculair political history, this is only the second time that the leader of the Official Opposition before an election has become Premier. The previous instance was Peter Lougheed in 1971.

This was the first provincial election in which eligible voters could cast ballots in any advance poll in the province (called the "Vote Anywhere" feature by Elections Alberta). As a measure to protect their secrecy, "Vote Anywhere" ballots were sealed and transported to Elections Alberta headquarters to be counted. The counting of "Vote Anywhere" ballots did not start until April 17, meaning the winners of a few ridings closely contested between the UCP and NDP may not be known for several days.

  • May 18: PC leader Jason Kenney and Wildrose leader Brian Jean announce that merger referendums will be held in their parties on July 22, 2017. If they pass, with thresholds of 50%+1 of PC members and 75% of Wildrose members, the parties will begin the process of merging into the United Conservative Party, or UCP.[20]
  • May 25: The Alberta Electoral Boundaries Commission presents its interim report, proposing changes to the boundaries and names of the province's ridings for the next election.[21]

This did not occur prior to dissolution of the House, thus, Starke never officially became an independent MLA.[25]

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ The UCP was formed by a merger of the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta and the Wildrose Party. The PCs won 10 seats and 27.80% of the vote in 2015, however, their seats were reduced to 9 by Jim Prentice's disclamation of victory in his riding. Wildrose won 21 seats and 24.23% of the vote. Combined, the two parties won 31 seats and 52.03% of the vote.
