CALGARY - The Alberta Party has extended its leadership race by almost three weeks to provide potential candidates with more time to build their campaigns and sell memberships.

A winner was supposed to be announced on Feb. 7, but that has been pushed back to Feb. 27.

The party says it made the change after receiving feedback from constituency associations and members.

There are no candidates so far to replace Greg Clark, who stepped down as leader in November.

Online voting is to be held from noon Feb. 25 to noon Feb. 27, with the winner to be announced later that day.

Each member will get one vote and will be asked to rank candidates preferentially.
