Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae will not seek the party’s permanent leadership after all. Sources tell Toronto Standard that Rae will reveal more details to the media at a news conference at 12:15 p.m..

Previously, it was suspected that Rae might throw his name into the ring in the leadership race, if he received the approval of the party. 

If that were to be the case, the Liberal Party of Canada executive would have decided whether to allow Rae to enter the race. Rae famously vied for the role in the 2006 leadership vote, ultimately losing to Stéphane Dion.

The interim party leader, a former Ontario premier for the NDP, assumed his current position after vowing not to run in the eventual leadership race – a promise he has kept, in spite of fervent political speculation. A permanent leader has yet to be chosen, but many suspect that MP Justin Trudeau will run for the position.
