With three nominees for the Green Party Malpeque riding, the Green Party of Canada – P.E.I., will close nominations on June 15.
The federal council accepted the recommendation of Jeremy Stiles, CEO Malpeque to close nominations.
Stiles said members will have until noon on June 15 to contest the decision.
“There are currently three nominees who have come forward – Anna Keenan, Perry Williams and Randy Gass,” he said.
Federal Green party candidates have been running on the Island since 1984, but this is the first time that one of the four federal ridings will host a contested nomination event.
“This speaks to the interest and support of the federal Green party which continues to build on the recent provincial election.”
The nomination event takes place July 2 at 7 p.m. at the North Rustico Lions Club, located at 17 Timber Lane, North Rustico.
