29th Saskatchewan general election

The 29th Saskatchewan general election, is scheduled to be held no later than October 26, 2020, to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan. This date is provided for under Saskatchewan's amended fixed election date law, but does not remove the ability of the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan to call an early election due to a vote of no confidence or on the advice of the Premier of Saskatchewan. If the election date is during a federal election campaign it would be moved to April 5, 2021, under the law. The previous election re-elected the Saskatchewan Party to its third consecutive majority government under the leadership of Brad Wall. On August 10, 2017, Wall announced his resignation as leader, pending the election of his successor.[1] On January 27, 2018, Scott Moe was elected leader of the Saskatchewan Party. He was appointed and sworn in as premier on February 2.

Incumbent Premier

Scott Moe


According to the 2019 amendment to The Legislative Assembly Act, 2007 (Saskatchewan), "the first general election after the coming into force of this subsection must be held on Monday, October 26, 2020".[2][3][4] However, the act also provides that if the election period would overlap with a federal election period, the provincial election is to be postponed until the first Monday of the following April; in this case: April 5, 2021.[4] This law does not infringe on the Lieutenant Governor's right to dissolve the Legislative Assembly at an earlier date on the Premier's advice.
