The governing Liberals have 60 days to announce a date for a byelection, with a vote to be held within 30 days of that date.

Kent represented Mount Pearl North for a decade, but left politics to become the new chief administrative officer for the City of Mount Pearl.

Chuck Nurse, former president of the St. John's firefighters' association, announced on Twitter that he will seek the PC Party's nomination.

The provincial New Democratic Party has also called for nominations, setting a deadline of Thursday, Oct. 12.

Ches Crosbie not running for seat vacated by Steve Kent

St. John's lawyer still focusing attention on leadership run

CBC News Posted: Sep 26, 2017 8:16 AM NT| Last Updated: Sep 26, 2017 8:16 AM NT

Ches Crosbie sits down with Here and Now's Anthony Germain to discuss his future in politics.



Despite speculation that Ches Crosbie will run in the upcoming Mount Pearl byelection, the St. John's lawyer says he will not be offering.

During a conversation with Here and Now's Anthony Germain, Crosbie said he was focusing only on the PC party leadership right now.

"It is a serious effort that has to be mounted and the people of that district deserves their full attention," he said.

"I don't think it's a smart thing to do, and I don't think people would appreciate it if you divided your attention."

While he is the only person to express interest in running for the party's leadership, Crosbie has still yet to fully commit to it. He says he wants to visit all 40 voting districts in the province before making his decision. He has 10 left to visit.

Crosbie also discussed his campaign videos, his love of James Bond movies and his perceived charisma problem.

The party always goes with short nomination periods, at least in last several years. Once they find their preferred candidate they call a quick nomination.

Two people have come forward and the party will likely have the nomination meeting sometime next week, giving the candidates very little time.

Two are vying for the PC Nomination in Mount Pearl North – the seat
vacated by Tory Steve Kent.

At the close of nominations at noon today, Jim Lester and Chuck Nurse put their names forward for nomination.

The PC Party says information concerning a nomination meeting to select the new candidate will be announced in the coming days.

The House of Assembly will open for a special sitting on Monday to debate changes to the Elections Act that the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional and outdated.
