EDMONTON - Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach says he will not run in the next provincial election.


The premier says he has decided 25 years is enough in politics and he's not prepared to serve another full term.


Stelmach says he will officially announce his resignation as Conservative party leader at a later date.

 

The
premier has been under increasing pressure over his leadership as a new
party on the right, the Wildrose Alliance, has surged in the polls.


Stelmach became premier in December 2006 and led the party to a large majority in the 2008 election.
