Alberta general election, 1997

The Alberta general election of 1997 was the twenty-fourth general election for the Province of Alberta, Canada. It was held on March 11 1997 to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.

Ralph Klein's second election as leader of the Progressive Conservative Party was considerably more successful than his first. The PC Party won over half the popular vote, and 63 of the 83 seats in the legislature for its eighth consecutive term in government.

The Liberal Party of Grant Mitchell lost about 7% of the popular vote it had won in the 1993 election. The party's legislative caucus was reduced from 32 members to 18.

Pam Barrett led the New Democratic Party back into the legislature with two seats (both in Edmonton), despite winning an even smaller share of the popular vote than in 1993.

The Social Credit Party also re-emerged, but did not win any seats.
