Saskatchewan premier meets with new caucus just days after landslide victory

REGINA - Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall welcomed a lot of new faces and returning MLAs to the new government's first caucus meeting.

The Saskatchewan Party's new caucus met for the first time on Wednesday at the Saskatchewan legislature.

As he did four years ago, Wall made sure each member got a fresh copy of the party's platform.

He insists it will guide them in their second term but they'll also be looking out for each other.

He told new members that caucus will keep them accountable and make sure everyone has perspective.

Then reporters were asked to leave so Wall and his government could get down to business.

“We’ve got some governing to do,” he said.

On Monday, the Saskatchewan Party captured 49 of the 58 seats in the legislature. The NDP lost 11 of its seats to the Saskatchewan Party and won just nine seats.
