Liberal leadership extension failing to boost voter numbers by The Canadian Press at CBC News on 19 March 2013

The Liberal Party of Canada is trying to find a new leader.  Politics can be difficult – both my father and father-in-law are or have previously been involved.  Politicians undertake a commitment to take action to help their constituents.

This is not a national election, but a party-specific vote.  There are 294,000 party members, yet only 114,000 (or 39%) have signed up to vote.  Is this a failure of leadership (not creating a compelling vision, lack of charisma, etc.), or can it be attributed to something else?
