The provincial New Democrats will not be accepting the results of tonight's Delta North constituency association's nomination meeting. In an interview, Gerry Scott also explained the party executive had earlier approved Delta North's nomination date with the understanding that the association grow their membership and ensure a fair election process. But, when a complaint about that process was filed by candidate Sukhinder Sandhu, the executive cancelled that meeting.
Mr. Scott also said the association seemed reluctant to accept provincial policy that would expand their membership. But he declined to comment on constituency association president Ernie Fulton's specific concerns with Mr. Sandhu's membership sign-ups. He also declined to say whether he thought the Delta North New Democrat leadership was trying to make sure Mr. Sandhu's competitor, local councillor Guy Gentner, wins the nomination.
