At the Leadership event on April 28, 2018, Ches Crosbie was sworn in as the Leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The event came at the end of a province-wide voting process.

Party members in all 40 districts of the province voted by mail – one member, one vote.

Every district was allocated 100 points. In each district, each candidate was given a proportion of those points according to their proportion of the votes cast in that district.

The points were then tallied for the 40 districts.

There were two contestants in the election – Ches Crosbie and Tony Wakeham.

The Party is united behind the new Leader and setting its sights on the election of 2019.

“One shared vision and one mission – to defeat the Liberals and win the government in 2019.” – Ches Crosbie, April 28, 2018
