The Canadian Labour Congress is congratulating Jagmeet Singh on a decisive win in today’s New Democatic Party leadership vote.

“On the first ballot, Jagmeet has won the support of over half of the NDP’s membership, both from the party’s base, and those who’ve signed up because they’re excited to see a bold new vision,” said CLC President Hassan Yussuff.

“We’re looking forward to working with Jagmeet to advance the goals of working people across Canada,” he added.

Singh won 53.8 percent of the more than 60,000 votes cast in the leadership contest today.
