Saskatchewan Votes 

(PoliticsWatch Updated 10:10 a.m., 
November 8, 2007)

After 10 years in existence, the right-leaning Saskatchewan Party has won its first-ever provincial election. 

Saskatchewan Party leader Brad Wall led his party to a solid majority government victory over NDP Premier Lorne Calvert.

The results were convincing with the Saskatchewan Party winning 50.6 per cent of the popular vote and 37 of the 58 seats in the legislature. 

For the second election in a row, the provincial Liberals, led by 42-year-old David Karwacki, failed to win a seat.
