Doug Ford meets with Christine Elliott after Ontario PC Party leadership race
….Elliott has said she won the popular vote and the majority of ridings, and said thousands of party members were assigned to incorrect ridings during the voting process.
The party said, however, that Ford’s win was definitive. It noted that there had been an issue with the allocation of certain electoral votes but the matter was reviewed and resolved.
“These results are definitive and provide a clear mandate to Doug Ford as outlined in our party constitution and the leadership election rules,” Hartley Lefton, chair of the party’s leadership election organizing committee, said Sunday.
