Breaking News: Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall Announces Retirement From Politics
After serving as Premier of Saskatchewan for nearly 10 years, Premier Brad Wall today announced that he will be retiring from that position and elected politics when his party elects a new Leader. In a video statement released today Wall stated:
This November will mark 10 years since I had the incredible honour of being elected as Premier of this wonderful province that I love. I've always thought that the 10 year mark- should I be so fortunate to serve that long- might be the right time to reevaluate.
Together with Tami, I have decided that now is the time for renewal for my party, for the government, for the province. It's time for me to retire from politics. And so I've asked the Saskatchewan Party to begin the process of electing a new leader, who will become the next Premier. I'll continue to serve as Premier until the new leader is chosen.
