Saskatchewan general election, 1995
The Saskatchewan general election of 1995 was the twenty-third provincial election held in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It was held on June 21, 1995, to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan.
The Liberal Party of Saskatchewan, led by Lynda Haverstock, increased its share of the popular vote, added 10 seats in the legislature to the one seat it held previously, and became the official opposition.
Saskatchewan voters continued to punish the Progressive Conservative Party for the scandals and mismanagement during the government of Grant Devine. Under the leadership of Bill Boyd , the party continued to lose votes, and its caucus was reduced from 10 members to 5.
