Personal details
Political party Liberal

Eddie Joyce is a Canadian politician, who represents the district of Bay of Islands in the Newfoundland and Labrador House of Assembly. A member of the Liberal Party caucus, he is currently the party's interim leader and the leader of the official opposition in the House of Assembly.[1]

Joyce was first elected in the 1989 election — however, as party leader Clyde Wells had been defeated by Lynn Verge in his own riding despite leading the Liberal Party to victory, Joyce stepped aside to allow Wells to contest the seat in a by-election. He worked in the executive offices of Wells and his successor as Premier, Brian Tobin, until the 1999 election, when he ran for office again in Bay of Islands. He won the seat and served until the 2007 election, when he was defeated by Terry Loder.[1] In October 2010, Joyce announced that he would re-seek the Liberal nomination, and in the 2011 provincial election he defeated Loder to reclaim his old seat.[2]

On July 18, 2013 Joyce was named Leader of the Opposition and interim Liberal leader, replacing Dwight Ball who resigned to run for the provincial leadership permanently in the party's 2013 convention.[1][3]
