Candice Bergen has been the interim leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, following the ousting of Erin O'Toole earlier today.

Conservative MPs took to Twitter after the vote to congratulate Bergen.

"Our great country needs us more than ever as Conservatives to be a strong government-in-waiting. I’m looking forward to working with our new interim Leader @CandiceBergenMP as we hold the Liberals to account and stand up for the interest of all Canadians," said Member of Parliament for Parry Sound-Muskoka Scott Aitchison.

"Our country is in desperate need of responsible government. Looking forward to working for all Canadians under the steady hand of my friend @CandiceBergenMP and a united @CPC_HQ team," said rising-star Tory MP Melissa Lantsman.

Bergen beat out fellow MPs Rob Moore, John Williamson, Kerry Lyne Findlay, John Brassard, Tom Kmiec, Marilyn Gladu, and John Barlow for the position.

Bergen has served as the Deputy Leader of the Conservative Party and Deputy Leader of the Opposition since September 2020.

Interim leaders cannot run for Conservative Party leadership.
