Description:
The Nova Scotia Liberal Party held a leadership election on April 27, 2007 at the Dartmouth Sportsplex, following the resignation of Francis MacKenzie, shortly after failing to win a seat in the 2006 election. This was the third leadership convention for the Liberals since 2002. It was won by Annapolis MLA Stephen McNeil.

The Liberal Party is a centrist political party in the Province of Nova Scotia, Canada. It is, with the Progressive Conservative Party of Nova Scotia and New Democratic Party of Nova Scotia, one of three parties that have formed a government in the province. The Liberal Party of Nova Scotia has controlled the government for much of the province's history, having been in power from Canadian Confederation in 1867 to 1878, 1882 to 1925, 1933 to 1956, 1970 to 1978 and 1993 to 1999. However, from the 1999 election until the 2009 election it was relegated to third party status behind the Progressive Conservatives and the New Democratic Party of Nova Scotia. In 2009, under McNeil's leadership, the party returned to official opposition status as the second largest party in the legislature.

The new leader was chosen by a full delegated convention, the first in the party since 1986, after which time the party had adopted a one member one vote system used in the 1992 and all subsequent leadership contests.

Michel Samson was the interim leader of the Liberal Party of Nova Scotia, and leader in the House of Assembly for the third place party.
