More than 1,500 delegates attending an NDP convention in Edmonton have voted in favour of a federal leadership review.
That likely means the end for current leader Tom Mulcair.
Delegates cast their ballots with 52% voting in favour of a potential change, and review of the party’s direction going forward.
The vote comes after Mulcair finished in third during the 2015 federal election last October, reducing the party to third place status in the House Of Commons.
The previous federal election in 2011 gave many in the party hope as they became the official opposition and appeared ready to take a run at forming Canada’s next government in a future election.
Mulcair says he’ll stay on as NDP leader until replacement is elected.
