Interim provincial Liberal Leader Yvonne Jones will soon be the official leader of the party.
The Liberals have a leadership convention scheduled for St. John’s for November.
But when nominations for the leadership race closed at 5 p.m. today, Jones was the only person to have filed the necessary paperwork.
She’ll be officially acclaimed leader at the convention.
Jones has held the title of Official Opposition leader on a temporary basis since former leader Gerry Reid narrowly lost his seat in the 2007 provincial election.
