Following the past weekend's unity vote for Alberta conservatives, members of the legacy Wildrose and Progressive Conservative caucuses held their first joint meeting as united conservatives Monday. During that meeting, Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills MLA Nathan Cooper was selected as the new party's interim leader.
The United Conservative Party is the new name under which the Wildrose and PC parties will merge. Wildrose Leader Brian Jean and PC Leader Jason Kenney signed what they see as an historic agreement in principle (AIP) establishing the process to unify both parties into the United Conservative Party.
