  Interim leader - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An interim leader, in Canadian politics, is a party leader who is appointed by the party's legislative caucus or the party's executive to temporarily act as leader when there is a gap between the resignation or death of a party leader and the election of his or her formal successor.
By convention, an interim leader should be a caucus member who is not standing as a candidate in the official leadership race, so that he or she does not gain unfair advantage in the leadership contest.
An interim leader has all the rights and responsibilities of an elected party leader, except that he or she does not have the discretion to call a leadership race, as one must be held within a certain time period after an interim leader is appointed.
