Ontario Liberal leadership candidate Sandra Pupatello can count on nine delegates from Ottawa-Orléans at the upcoming leadership convention after local Liberals held their riding delegate selection meeting over the weekend.

According to the unofficial results, Pupatello received 91 of the 157 ballots cast. Harinder Takhar and Gerard Kennedy received 28 and 27 votes respectively, giving them three delegates each, and Kathleen Wynne got five votes which was good enough to pick up one delegate.

The selected delegates will travel to Toronto on Jan. 25 to take part in the leadership convention which will select the next premier of Ontario.

According to province-wide results, Pupatello has 504 delgates heading into the convention. Wynne has 463 delegates, while Kennedy is a distant third with 257 delegates selected. Takhar has 244 delegates, Mississauga South MPP Charles Sousa has 198 delegates, and Toronto area MPP Eric Hoskins has 104 delegates.
