Former federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair says that Rachel Notley will not serve another term as Albertas NDP premier, barring some very unforeseen circumstance.

Its going to be very surprising if all of the polls are that wrong. She has put up a spirited fight. Shes delivered on some of her key promises, has disappointed on others and well see whether its there for her on election day, the CTV News political analyst told CTVs Power Play on Wednesday.

But he said that the poll numbers are so solidly in United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenneys favour, that barring some very unforeseen circumstance the result is pretty well pre-ordained.

Notleys leadership has been challenged on a number of fronts, especially during turbulent times for Albertas oil and gas industry.
