Alberta Premier Jason Kenney needs to know today if he still has enough support from his party to stay in the lead.
The United Conservative Party plans to release the results of the mail-in vote on Kenney’s leadership review.
It has been a contentious process, with Kenney facing open criticism from a number of caucus members.
If he wins majority support – even a narrow majority – he says he will stay on as leader.
He says if that happens, he expects opponents to support him or face consequences that have yet to be named.
Party rules state that if Kenney doesn’t get at least 50%, he must resign and there must be a leadership contest.
