N.B. NDP names next leader

The New Brunswick New Democratic Party has named its next permanent leader

Alex White has been a member of the provincial party for more than two decades.

He recently served as interim leader for nearly a year until a leadership race began in May.

“Despite the politics of division heard regularly, New Brunswickers are all struggling, everything has gotten more expensive, and there is no party truly dedicated to helping to alleviate it,” White said in a news release on Friday.

“New Brunswick needs to see that a thriving NDP is the voice to actually advocate for and effect change for them, from Bathurst to St. Stephen, Alma to Edmundston.”

White ran under the party’s banner during the last two provincial elections, representing Saint John East in 2018 and Hampton in 2020.

In the news release, the party executive said White has “proven himself a principled, passionate, and capable leader, bringing new vigor to the party and growing our membership.”
