Progressive Conservative



The 42nd general election of Manitoba, scheduled for September 10, 2019 will be held to elect members to the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba.[1] The Progressive Conservative government, led by Premier Brian Pallister, will attempt to win re-election. The NDP elected Wab Kinew as their new leader on September 16, 2017. Kinew was elected to the Legislative Assembly in 2016. The Liberals elected Dougald Lamont as their new leader on October 21, 2017. Lamont was elected to the Legislative Assembly in 2018.

Date[edit]

Under the Manitoba Elections Act, the general election is to be held on the first Tuesday of October in the fourth calendar year, following the previous election.[2] As the last election was held in 2016, that date would be October 6, 2020. However, the act also provides that if, as of January 1 of the election year, the election period would overlap with a federal election period, the provincial election is to be postponed until the third Tuesday of the following April.[3]

New boundaries[edit]

In accordance with the law, Manitoba's electoral boundaries are reviewed every 10 years and this process is scheduled to complete at the end of 2018 with the 2020 elections being fought on new boundaries.[4][5]
