Dan D'Autremont has been chosen as the new Speaker of the Saskatchewan legislature.
The veteran MLA beat out former Speaker Don Toth in a secret ballot Monday.
As one of the original eight founding members of the Saskatchewan Party, D'Autremont has represented the Cannington constituency for two decades.
As Speaker, his job will be to act as a neutral overseer of the debates, and maintain order among fellow MLAs.
