NDP’s Andrea Horwath, Liberal’s Steven Del Duca step down from party leadership – BREAKING NEWS

While it is no surprise that Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives have won a majority government in Ontario, the resignation of NDP leader Andrea Horwath is certainly big news.

A teary-eyed Horwath announced that she is stepping down from the leadership post she has held for 13 years at her concession speech in Hamilton on Thursday evening. She said it was time for her to pass the torch onto someone else. The 2022 election was her fourth as the party’s leader. While her party secured 40 seats in 2018, they ended with just 31 this time around having lost eight seats and one going independent. They will however continue as the Official Opposition.

Steven Del Duca also announced that he is stepping down as Ontario Liberal leader. He said it was time for him to pack it in. The provincial Liberals are projected to finish in third position. As of 11 pm, they had won 8 seats just managing to regain official party status in Ontario, and gaining one more seat than the 2018 election.
