WINNIPEG — “Democracy has worked tonight. Yes, it has.”
Manitoba New Democratic Party leader Greg Selinger talked over a crowd of beaming supporters at the RBC Convention Centre Tuesday evening, after losing his majority government to the Progressive Conservatives. It marked the end of 16 years in power for the NDP, and also the end of Selinger’s run as party leader.
“I will and I have already, talked to the president of the party, and I’ve offered my resignation.”
Supporters at NDP headquarters took the news with mixed emotions.
