Mamakwa steps forward in his new role with NDP.  

Sol Mamakwa, MPP for the riding of Kiiwetinoong, has been named one of the new Deputy Leaders of the Ontario New Democratic Party (NDP) by Interim Party Leader Peter Tabuns.

Peter Tabuns, MPP for the Toronto-Danforth riding, was selected as interim Party Leader while the search for the new Leader continues.
