Sikh lawyer Jagmeet Singh voted leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party

A 38-year-old Sikh lawyer was today elected the leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party, becoming the first member of a minority community to lead a major political party in the country.

Jagmeet Singh, the Ontario provincial lawmaker, was elected on the first ballot to lead the party into the 2019 election against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.

He won the decisive first-ballot victory over three other candidates by winning 53.6 percent of the vote.

He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Western Ontario in 2001 and a Bachelor of Laws degree from York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School in 2005.
