Two more political parties have announced their candidates for Skeena-Bulkley Valley in the upcoming federal election.

On Saturday, the NDP's riding association gathered in Terrace, where Smithers mayor Taylor Bachrach won the nomination on the first ballot.

He defeated Tahltan leader Annita McPhee, Smithers Councillor Greg Brown and Terrace resident Amanda Ramsay.

Current New Democrat MP Nathan Cullen announced in March he would not run for re-election.

Craven had earlier run for the Conservative nomination for the riding, but was defeated by former Kitimat District councillor Claire Rattee, who will be that party's candidate this fall. 

Also expected to be on the ballot this fall is the Christian Heritage Party's Rod Taylor.

The Liberal and Green Parties have yet to announce their candidates.
