John Horgan to become next Premier of British Columbia

NDP leader John Horgan has been asked to form government by Lieutenant-General Judith Guichon, meaning he will become the province’s next Premier.

With the support of the Green Party, Horgan has a 1-seat majority in the B.C. Legislative Assembly, meaning an NDP minority would be unstable, especially so after losing one seat to nominate a Speaker. Every confidence vote afterwards would have to be broken by the Speaker, which many see as tarnishing the position’s impartiality.
