Green Party Probably Holds Balance of Power in British Columbia Legislature

Ballot Access News

British Columbia held an election on Tuesday, May 9. The results: Liberal 43, New Democratic 41, Green 3. Previously the Green Party had only one seat. See this story. It is possible one seat will be changed by a recount. In the recount changes the result, then the Liberal Party would have 44, enough for a majority.

This is probably the first time since 1953 that no party won a majority in the British Columbia legislature. The three Green Party victories were all in districts that are not on the mainland. See this story.
