The Progressive Conservative leadership was thrown into a tailspin when the man who was set to be the next premier of Newfoundland and Labrador handed the job back.

Frank Coleman announced on Monday that he would no longer be pursuing the leadership of the party, citing a an issue that cropped up in his family.

The Tories are now back to square one to find someone who can take on the role of premier.

Meanwhile, Liberal leader Dwight Ball made some big promises if his party is elected to power in the next provincial election.

Ball was on this week's edition of On Point with David Cochrane discussing what's going on in provincial politics.

The Telegram's Russell Wangersky and CBC's St. John's Morning Show host Anthony Germain were also featured on the On Point panel.
