Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Progressives (United Farmers of Manitoba) won a majority in the 1922 election without a leader. Bracken was then approached by the party to become leader and Premier. Following the 1932 election Bracken's Progressives formed a coalition with the Liberals. Henceforth the two parties ran joint candidates and eventually merged into the Liberal-Progressive Party. Following the 1936 election a broader coalition was formed including the Social Credit party and at times the CCF, but only the Liberals and Progressives ran joint candidates.
