    CALGARY | former federal minister, Jason Kenney, was elected Thursday as a member of parliament for the constituency of Calgary-Lougheed, making his entrance to the legislative Assembly of Alberta.

    Elected leader of the conservative Party kingdom on the 28th of last October, Kenney looked forward to this election in order to be able to defend the lines of his party in the legislative Assembly to prepare for the provincial election that will take place in 2019.

    Kenney, who has been minister of national Defence, and Citizenship, human Resources and skills Development and Immigration under the banner of a conservative to the House of Commons, has obtained more than 70% of the vote.

    The neo-democrat Phillip van der Merwe finished second with 17% of the vote. The New democratic Party of Alberta has been in power while Rachel Notley has been elected as the first minister on 24 may 2015.

    During his victory speech, Kenney was sent to her rival, “Madam prime minister, I look forward to meeting you at the legislative Assembly.”

    The conservative Party uk is a political formation born from the merger of the two main parties of the right in alberta, the party Wildrose and the progressive conservative Party of Alberta that occurred earlier this year.
