Amir Alavi will represent the Liberal Party of Canada for Prince George—Peace River—Northern Rockies in the upcoming federal election.

The party announced Alavi’s acclamation Wednesday evening, but no further information was released about the candidate.

“As we look forward to the important work ahead of us, the hope and hard work of Liberals across Canada will ensure our candidates and teams are ready to run competitive campaigns, and earn another mandate from Canadians – including right here in Prince George—Peace River—Northern Rockies,” said Liberal National Campaign Co-Chair, Navdeep Bains, in a statement.

“With a strong focus on important new engagement with Canadians, the Team Trudeau nominations process helps ensure we’re ready to re-elect our dedicated Liberal team in Parliament and continue to elect even more talented, diverse, and hardworking community leaders as Liberal MPs across Canada, whenever the next campaign eventually arrives.”

So far, incumbent Conservative MP Bob Zimmer, and Maverick Party Dave Jeffers have started on the campaign trail despite no candidates officially confirmed in the riding. Cory Longley was nominated as the NDP candidate for the riding on Tuesday.

Catharine Kendall, out of Prince George, is listed as the candidate for the Greens.

The close of nominations for candidates is August 30th . A complete list of confirmed candidates will be available on September 1st.

Advanced voting takes place for four days, starting September 10th.
