ESTEVAN - Souris-Moose Mountain MP Robert Kitchen announced Monday he will not be seeking re-election in the next federal vote. 

“It has been a great honour and privilege to serve the people of southeast Saskatchewan as their member of Parliament, and to represent them in Ottawa for the last decade,” said Kitchen, who is a Conservative MP.

“I look forward to continuing on in my role as MP until the next federal election in 2025, and would like to thank the constituents of Souris-Moose Mountain who have shown me incredible support for the past 10 years."

Kitchen worked as a chiropractor in Estevan before becoming an MP. He was first elected in 2015, capturing 70.14 per cent of the vote. He was re-elected in 2019 with 84.4 per cent support and in 2021 with 76.4 per cent. 

He said last fall he planned to seek another term as Souris-Moose Mountain's MP, but has since changed his mind.

Moosomin MLA Steven Bonk has already declared his intention to seek the Conservative Party's nomination for the next election. 

More to come.
