On May 8, the Freedom Conservative Party elected their new interim party leader David White.

White takes over as party leader after former party leader, Derek Fildebrant stepped down after losing the race for the Chestermere-Strathmore riding to his former party's candidate UCP MLA Leela Aheer.

White was elected via secret runoff ballot involving three candidates. White will preside as Interim Leader of the FCP until a Leadership Convention is held sometime early next year.
