Seems that the first round has shown Thomas Mulcair leading in the NDP leadership race. Thomas Mulcair won 30% of the vote on the first ballot. However, can the Quebec MP get enough support to win the race to succeed Jack Layton?
First Ballot Results:
Thomas Mulcair: 19,728 votes
Nathan Cullen: 10,671 votes
Brian Topp: 13,915 votes
Peggy Nash: 8,353 votes
Paul Dewar: 4,683 votes
Martin Singh: 3,821 votes
Niki Ashton: 3,737 votes
Update: It looks like Thomas Mulcair is closer to winning the leadership of the NDP. He remains in the lead on the second ballot, but just short of a victory.
