Twitter Trolls Are Mounting A Really Weak Astroturf Campaign In The Ontario PC Leadership Race

They also claim that thousands of members of the Progressive conservative party were not directed towards their constituencies. "That is why our team took the last twenty-four hours to review the results of an election that was incredibly close".

CBC News reported earlier Saturday that Ford had indeed won the snap, six-week leadership race, but party officials decided not to announce any results until outstanding questions over some disputed ballots could be answered.

Ford entered the leadership race with a high degree of name recognition thanks mostly to his status as the brother of Rob Ford, the late scandal-plagued former mayor of Toronto.

The leadership race was a squeaker, with Elliott only 153 points behind Ford.

As of 8 a.m. Friday, he said, 71,402 party members had been verified and the party confirmed that 64,053 members had voted when balloting closed at noon Friday.

While he joined all other candidates in rejecting the idea of a carbon tax, he has made other proclamations geared toward the more socially conservative factions of the party membership.

"Our scrutineers identified entire towns voting in the wrong riding".

Some of the 2018 features planned for PC will also be making the jump, with emotes and more player customisation options on the way.

Rumours circulated throughout the afternoon on social media, but confirmed by party and Ford supporter sources that Ford had won the leadership, but that Elliott challenged the results and demanded a recount. "I will stand up for these members and plan to investigate the extent of this discrepancy".

But Ford had brushed off her allegations, saying he was working on restoring unity within the party as it works to topple Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne's government in a spring general election.

But in spite of Elliott's concession, uniting the party and making it appeal to a range of voters may prove a daunting task for Ford given his brash, often confrontational approach, which he displayed in his brief career in municipal politics and again in his leadership campaign, said Myer Siemiatycki, a political science professor at Toronto's Ryerson University.

He added that while both candidates are to be congratulated for their efforts, "this election is over and it is time for Christine to concede".

Brannan said the longer the party waits to select a new leader, the greater the danger it suffers "irreparable harm", scuttling chances for the Tories to win the June 7 election. "If there are things that need to be answered before she can say I'm 100 per cent signing off on behalf of the people that put their trust in her, then I obviously think she has a right to do that", he said.

Maybe, it's time to stop pushing buttons to decide the winners of political races.

"I just want to move forward".

The Karnataka government later formed a 21-member SIT, led by Inspector General of Police B K Singh, to investigate the case. Recently, the Karnataka home minister Ramalinga Reddy assured that the SIT would soon reveal details on Kumar's detention.

It's not yet clear where Elliott run.

"Asking our courts... to intervene in the process every time there is a grievance risks opening the door to an innumerable number of court challenges", he wrote. Elliott was not in the room for Ford's statement.

Ford was declared the victor of the race Saturday night.

Ford said he hadn't spoken to Elliott, and vowed to hold a news conference "in the coming days" but gave no specifics.

"This was pretty much the most mishandled party executive communication exercise I've ever witnessed on television", she said.

As far as the party is concerned, Elliott has no path to victory. But there is little to back up Ford's assurances that running the family business has prepared him for provincial politics, he said.
