The Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador has selected its candidate for the district of Stephenville East-St. George’s, the party said in a prepared release.
Scott Reid secured the nomination after party members living in the district voted Monday evening at polling locations in Stephenville, Stephenville Crossing, St. George’s, McKays and Upper Ferry.
Reid was in the running with Thomas Rose and Corrine Slade to carry the Liberal banner into a byelection for the district.
The date of a byelection has yet to be announced to replace the seat left vacant by the resignation of Progressive Conservative MHA and cabinet minister Joan Shea back in June.
A Progressive Conservative candidate is yet to be selected for the district.
