ALBERTA — The Alberta Party and Liberals were shut out in a hotly contested provincial election that was dominated by the UCP and NDP parties.

Both Liberal leader David Khan in Calgary-Mountain View and Alberta Party leader Stephen Mandel in Edmonton-McClung failed to earn a seat.

 

Mandel is the former mayor of Edmonton, while Khan is a constitutional lawyer. The Alberta Party earned nearly 10 per cent of the popular vote while the Liberals hovered near one per cent.

The lack of seats for the Liberals is reminiscent of the 1970s when they failed to earn seats between 1971 to 1982.
