WINNIPEG — Manitoba Liberal leader Rana Bokhari says the political infighting happening with the province’s NDP government shows they can’t govern for Manitoba voters.
“While the NDP is playing political games, Manitoba families will suffer,” said Bokhari. “Manitobans need a government that is working for them. What they don’t need are Ministers who are only concerned with their own interests.”
Five ministers spoke out against Premier Greg Selinger this week after a drop in poll numbers show the party’s popularity is waning after last summer’s PST increase.
Selinger addressed the media on Tuesday and vowed to remain as leader and to take the party into the next provincial election in 2016.
The five ministers who suggested Selinger step down have so far remained in their positions with no apparent consequences.
“Every single NDP MLA voted for the PST increase. The NDP are misguided if they believe that changing leaders will change their track record,” Bokhari added.
Bokhari said the government must be held accountable for their decisions.
