EDMONTON – Alberta’s Rachel Notley says she’s starting to get used to people calling her premier and she plans to hold her first caucus meeting on Saturday.

She says she’s been having good meetings about the issues the NDP faces as it moves to take over.

Notley was speaking before a meeting with Alberta Lt.-Gov. Donald Ethell in which he will ask her whether she is able to form the next government.

She says she’s been receiving calls from premiers and others across the country offering advice.

Notley says her transition team is pulling things together, but is still figuring out logistics involving computers and “where to plug in the phone.”

The NDP won a majority in Tuesday’s election and toppled the 44-year-old Progressive Conservative dynasty.
