Alberta's United Conservative Party has announced rules for a leadership contest to be held Oct. 6 to choose a new leader and the province's next premier.
Candidates must each put up a non-refundable entry fee of $150,000, along with $25,000 that will be returned to them as long as they don't breach the rules.
Ballots are to be preferential and will consist of mail-in and in-person votes at five locations.
Eligible candidates must also get a nomination petition signed by at least 1,000 party members from across the province.
The deadline for the required signatures and first instalment of the entry fee is July 20.
Premier Jason Kenney announced last month that he was stepping down after receiving 51.4 per cent support in a leadership review.
