Saskatchewan general election, 1986

Saskatchewan general election, 1986

The Saskatchewan general election of 1986 was the twenty-first provincial election held in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It was held on October 20 1986, to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan.

The Progressive Conservative government of Premier Grant Devine was returned for a second term with a reduced majority in the legislature.

While the New Democratic Party managed to increase its share of the popular vote and significantly increase its presence in the legislature, former Premier Allan Blakeney's attempt to return to power was unsuccessful. Despite winning slightly more votes than the PC Party, the NDP won fewer seats and formed the Official Opposition.

The Liberal Party captured almost 10% of the popular vote, but elected only one member, party leader Ralph Goodale, to the legislature.
