After weeks of speculation, Premier Stephen McNeil has officially dropped the writ, and Nova Scotians will head to the polls on May 30.
Premier Stephen McNeil met with Lt.-Gov. J. J. Grant to ask that he dissolve the government and call a general election.
The election call comes after promotional material was found on the Liberal party’s website and YouTube channel that pointed to a May 30 election date. The May 30 election date meant the premier would need to call an election by Sunday. The 30-day campaign is the minimum allowed under election laws in Nova Scotia
The Progressive Conservatives launched their election campaign in Dartmouth Saturday. The NDP launched their campaign last Sunday.
