HALIFAX — Nova Scotia’s NDP premier has set the date for the byelection in Cumberland South, creating a chance for the interim Conservative leader to take a run at a seat in the legislature.

Darrell Dexter said today the election will be held on Oct. 26.

Longtime Conservative Murray Scott gave up the seat on Sept. 9, clearing the way for interim party leader Jamie Baillie to take a run at winning the riding.

Scott held the riding for 12 years.

The Liberals have already nominated police officer Kenny John Jackson of Springhill as their candidate in the race.
