The necessary documents providing for the Dec.13 byelection were signed and issued today.

The chief electoral officer will be issuing an additional press release in the upcoming days that will indicate polling times, locations, and the dates and locations of advance polls.

There are currently 35 Progressive Conservatives, 18 New Democrats, three independent Liberals and one vacant seat in the Manitoba legislature.
