Carol Hughes, One of Three NDP MP’s Not Seeking Re-election

Three long-time MP’s will not be seeking re-election in the 2025 Federal election.

NDP MP’s Carol Hughes, Rachel Blaney and Charlie Angus have all announced their intentions to call it quits .

The federal New Democrats delivered the news in a joint announcement, saying all three want more family time after years of dedicated public service.

Angus, a 20-year veteran of Parliament Hill, confirmed his own plans to leave politics earlier Thursday.

New federal boundary changes have also led to their decision to leave politics behind.

Angus’s northern Ontario riding of Timmins—James Bay will expand this month.

Hughes, a longtime deputy Speaker who also represents northern Ontario, will see her riding of Algoma—Manitoulin—Kapuskasing disappear entirely in the next federal election.

Blaney, who has served North Island—Powell River, British Columbia , says it’s time for her to focus on her family and stay closer to home.

In a statement, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh thanked all three for their years of advocacy and their contributions to the party.
