TORONTO -- NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is holding open the possibility of forming a coalition government with the new Ontario Liberal leader and premier.

“If I could work with (Finance Minister Dwight) Duncan and (Premier Dalton) McGuinty, I think I could pretty much work with anybody,” Horwath said Tuesday. “I’ve proven that I can do this with the minority situation and that’s how I intend on going forward.

“My preference is to sit down with whoever it is that’s elected and get some things done for Ontarians. I’m not overly interested in the details of what that looks like.”

Horwath said that unlike some Liberal candidates and PC leader Tim Hudak, she’s not “chomping at the bit” for a quickie election after this month’s leadership convention.
