Bill Barry has decided against seeking the leadership of the Conservative party, according to media reports.
The fisheries tycoon had told The Western Star less than two weeks ago he would consider entering the race again if he deemed the process an appropriate one. Barry had sought the leadership along with Frank Coleman, but pulled out after he claimed the fix was in for Coleman to win.
Coleman later withdrew, stating family reasons, and the Conservatives are again looking for a new leader, who would then become premier of the province.
The Western Star has yet to reach Barry for comment today.
