Bob Hawkesworth says he plans to seek the NDP nomination for the byelection that is to be called in Calgary-Foothills.
Former premier Jim Prentice won the riding in the May 5 provincial election but quickly resigned when the Progressive Conservatives were swept from power.
Hawkesworth served two terms as the member for Calgary-Mountain View before losing the seat in 1993.
He also served on Calgary city council for 23 years.
No date has been set for the byelection. (CHQR)
