Stephen Harper: Canadian Prime Minister to Resign as Conservative Party Leader After Election Defeat
“We put everything on the table, we gave everything we have to give, and we have no regrets whatsoever,” he said of the 78-day campaign.

 

“We put everything on the table, we gave everything we have to give, and we have no regrets whatsoever,” he said of the 78-day campaign.

He failed to mention that he will also be stepping down from his position as the leader of the party, a decision that was confirmed in a released statement by John Walsh, President of the Conservative Party of Canada.

“I have spoken to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and he has instructed me to reach out to the newly elected parliamentary caucus to appoint an Interim Leader and to the National Council to implement the leadership selection process pursuant to the Conservative Party of Canada constitution,” reads the statement by Walsh.

A Conservative Party representative John Walsh confirmed the resignation in a statement released to media. Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau will become prime minister with a majority win in Parliament.
