Premier Kathleen Wynne says she will take the stand.
“I’ve said that I will testify.  I will go along with the process and do what I can to clarify as I have in the legislature many, many, many times.”
Pat Sorbara, Wynne’s former deputy chief of staff and Liberal fundraiser Gerry Lougheed face charges under the Election Act.
Their trial’s set to begin in September.
They’re accused of offering would-be candidate Andrew Olivier a job or appointment to get him to step aside for Glenn Thibeault, who won and is now energy minister.
Both deny the charges.
