Wall resigns as MLA effective January 31

Premier Brad Wall spoke at the December 11 Saskatchewan Party nomination meeting in Swift Current.

Brad Wall has submitted his resignation as Swift Current MLA effective January 31 as he officially completes a transition out of provincial politics.

Premier Wall will chair his final cabinet meeting and government caucus meeting today in one of his last days as Saskatchewan Premier.

A new Saskatchewan Party leader will be selected during a SaskParty Leadership Convention on Saturday, and the winner will be sworn in as Saskatchewan’s 15th Premier a few days later.

In a press release announcing his resignation timing, Wall noted it will be tough to say goodbye to his cabinet and caucus colleagues today.

“It will be a little sad, but at the same time, I’m feeling pretty good about what we have accomplished together and about the future of our province,” Wall stated.

“There is a sign over the cabinet room door that says ‘Did you leave things better than you found them?’ It’s a reminder to all of us of what we should be trying to achieve in public life.”
