The results are in and the Liberal Party of New Brunswick has a new leader.
Susan Holt was voted in as the new leader on Saturday, August, 6.
The party chose its new leader through a ranked balloting system, and to be elected, a candidate must receive 50%+1 of the points.
Holt received just over 51.6 per cent of the vote, which occurred in the third and final round of voting.
In a Twitter thread, Holt mentioned that bold change has to start now.
“I’m humbled to have earned your trust to lead the Liberal Party of New Brunswick. I’ve been loud and clear that I want to change the way we do politics. And I’m so grateful that you do too,” reads the tweet.
“This campaign and the last few months of travelling around the province have affected me deeply. I love this province more than ever. I feel connected to our communities more than ever. I more proud of our people than ever before,” added Holt’s Twitter thread.
The other three candidates included Donald Arseneault, Robert Gauvin, and TJ Harvey.
Arseneault was eliminated in the first round of voting with 14.22 per cent of the vote.
