There are now four people who have announced their candidacy for provincial leader of the Liberal Party, as former MHA Danny Dumaresque confirmed Tuesday morning that he wants the job.
Speaking before media at the Holiday Inn in St. John's, Dumaresque said his experience in both politics and private enterprise makes him a strong candidate for the job.
A self-professed member of the Liberal Party for 30 years, Dumaresque has spent the last 17 years working in the fishery processing sector. He recently sold a company to the Barry Group.
On Tuesday, he called the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric development a flawed project, and said Nalcor Energy should be subject to the Public Tender Act.
He plans to visit all election districts over the next three months and said the campaign will be an exciting time for the province.
