2019 Sackville-Cobequid By-Election Date Announcement Due in Spring
Sometime before May 16, 2019, a by-election will be announced for the seat in the House of Assembly representing Sackville-Cobequid in the province of Nova Scotia.
The Sackville-Cobequid seat became vacant with the resignation of MLA David Wilson on November 16, 2018.
When Wilson tendered his resignation to the Clerk of the House, he would not reveal his future plans. “It’s just time for me to look at other things,” said Wilson, according CBC.com.
A writ for a by-election must be issued six months from the date of his resignation. The by-election must be held on a Tuesday between 30 and 46 days from the date that writ is issued.
