With federal elections just around the corner, the NDP is facing a blow to candidates after all New Brunswick NDP candidates just announced that they will be dropping out of the race to join the Green Party. This means, that as of Tuesday, there will be no NDP candidates running throughout the entire province. This brings the NDP candidate count even lower than it has been the in the past few weeks.

According to CBC, 14 New Brunswick NDP candidates have announced that they will be dropping out of the running for their ridings and will be joining the Green Party instead. While none of these candidates have actually joined the Green Party, they announced to CBC that they would be submitting their applications late Tuesday afternoon.

Fourteen former New Brunswick NDP candidates have defected and are throwing their support behind the Green Party ahead of this fall's federal election.

These former New Democrats state that they "encourage all New Democrats, New Brunswickers, and, indeed, all Canadians in voting for the Green Party of Canada this election."

With all candidate leaving their ridings in New Brunswick, according to CBC, this leaves Jagmeet Singh and his party with an empty province for the time being. However, it is possible that more NDP candidates will come forward in the following weeks.

One of the reasons for this shift in political views from the NDP candidates could be due to the fact that NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has not visited New Brunswick since 2017. However, Elizabeth May from the Green Party has visited their province this year.

Elizabeth May says there's 'no room' for racism in Green Party after NDP defector's comments

Elizabeth May says there's 'no room' for racism in Green Party after NDP defector's comments Green Party Leader Elizabeth May issued a statement Wednesday saying "there is no room for any kind of racism" in her party after a recent convert made comments about NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh. On Tuesday, more than a dozen former New Brunswick NDP candidates threw their support behind the provincial and federal Greens. One of the defectors — Jonathan Richardson, the former federal NDP executive member for Atlantic Canada — said racism was one of the reasons for the party's lack of success in finding candidates with an election call imminent.

Another reason for the candidates banning together and making the switch to the Green Party is because "The Green Party of Canada has been steadfast in their beliefs, never flip-flopping on achieving their goal."

As all 14 NDP candidates in New Brunswick drop out, they are also encouraging all other New Brunswick candidates around Canada to do the same, yet so far, it looks like no other candidates have followed.

However, loosing 14 candidates this close to the federal elections is a low blow of the NDPs. Especially since the NDP has the lowest amount of candidates across the country.

On Thursday, before these candidates dropped out, it was reported that the NDPs were in the last place when it came to the number of candidates that they currently have running in the ridings around Canada.

Out of the 338 ridings, the NDP only had 148 candidates, over 100 less than the Liberals, and nearly 200 less than the Conservatives.

Now, it seems that the number of candidates running for NDP has lowered. However, last week, the NDP announced that they will have candidates in all ridings in time for election day.

Whether or not that statement still stands after the loss of 14 candidates is unknown.
