The Alberta UCP are the winners of the 2019 provincial election.

The UCP headquarters in Calgary exploded in celebration after party faithful saw a from-the-gate lead in pre-election polling and last night’s election returns, culminate with the new provincial conservative party winning in a landslide.

UCP leader and former federal cabinet minister Jason Kenney is the next Premier of Alberta after his party won 63 seats to defeat incumbent  Premier Rachel Notley and her New Democrats.

While Edmonton posted favourable NDP-returns, Calgary faced a blue wave, with many seats being swept up by the UCP.

Kennedy’s victory speech:

The NDP is the first party in Alberta to lose re-election after a one-term government.

Kenney, a top lieutenant in former-PM Stephen Harper’s government who returned to Alberta to re-energize the conservative movement, was elected in the riding of Calgary-Lougheed.

Liberal Party of Alberta leader David Khan was defeated in his own riding of Calgary-Mountain View.
