Danielle Smith, Leader of the Official Opposition with the Wildrose party, speaks at her annual Leader's Dinner in Edmonton, Alberta on Thursday, October 09, 2014

Alberta Wildrose legislature members have unanimously endorsed a resolution calling for the withdrawl of leader Danielle Smith's request for a leadership review.

Smith put her leadership on the line in the wake of four byelection losses last week, asking that a review be on the agenda when the party holds its annual general meeting in Red Deer later this month.

A news release from the party on Sunday states the request to withdraw the leadership review will now go to the party executive for consideration.

Smith says in the release that she is "humbled and honoured" to have the unanimous support of her caucus colleagues.

The Wildrose caucus was one member smaller on Sunday following the announcement from Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre MLA Joe Anglin that he was leaving the party to sit as an independent.

Anglin lost his local nomination race in July, and he accuses the party in a Facebook statement of "poor management and infighting."
