The Progressive Conservative party announced today that Wally Childs will run for the party in the byelection for the district of St.George's-Stephenville East.
Scott Reid will run for the Liberals and Bernice Hancock for the NDP.
The former MHA for the district, Joan Shea, resigned on June 2.
A date for the byelection has yet to be announced. By law, a byelection must be held within 90 days of the resignation.
