Saskatchewan Party

The Saskatchewan Party is a right-wing political party in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. The party was established in 1997 by a coalition of former Progressive Conservative and Liberal supporters who sought to remove the New Democratic Party from power. Today, the Saskatchewan Party serves as the province's Official Opposition thanks to its strong support in rural areas.

During the Saskatchewan general election, 2003, the Saskatchewan Party campaigned on a platform of tax reduction and decreased government involvement in the private sector. However, they lost, 28 seats to 30, to the NDP.

The party's current leader, Elwin Hermanson, announced his resignation two weeks after the election defeat.
