Former premier Rachel Notley, after almost a decade at the helm of Alberta’s NDP, is stepping down from the top job.

Notley, the Official Opposition leader, said the party will organize a leadership race and she will stay on as leader until members choose a replacement.

That means she will remain on the front bench during the upcoming spring sitting of the Alberta legislature.

Notley told the Canadian Press she doesn’t know her next steps after her leadership days, including whether she will fulfil her current term as the legislature member for Edmonton-Strathcona, a riding she has won handily in five consecutive elections.

She also did not rule out running again.
