Duncan announced that “as the Liberal party moves forward with renewal, I’ve decided that it’s time for me to move forward. Therefore I will not be seeking the leadership of the Liberal party. I will also not be running in the next general election.” However, Duncan did assure that he is still interested to help the federal Liberals in the process of rebuilding the party and the task of choosing a new leader. He made it clear that “I will stay very involved.” Upon inquiry, Duncan disclosed that he does not exactly have any job lined up for him.
The Liberals have already agreed to schedule a leadership convention in January in order to substitute Dalton McGuinty, who made an extremely astounding declaration last week. He, out of nowhere, announced to be stepping down after a long and hard earned 16 years as Liberal leader and nine years as premier.
