Regina's Victor Lau was selected as the leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan during a special leadership meeting on Sept. 25.

Lau, the deputy leader of the Green Party, replaces former leader Larissa Shasko who resigned at the start of the month after serving as Green leader since April 2009.

Lau, who had served as interim leader for the past number of weeks, earned 59 per cent of the ballots by receiving 63 of 106 votes. Larry Waldinger was runner-up with 38 votes, while Brendan Cross had just three supporters.

In a separate vote Mark Bigland-Pritchard was elected as deputy leader by a one vote margin.

After Shasko's departure at the start of the month, the Green Party chose to participate in a 14-day leadership race in advance of this fall's provincial election.
