Liberals say they will form minority government
British Columbia entered a new stage of political uncertainty Wednesday as the final vote count from the May 9 election confirmed the province’s first minority government in 65 years. The Liberals finished one seat short of a majority, with 43 seats in the 87-seat legislature. The NDP has 41 seats and the Greens hold the balance of power with three seats. Premier Christy Clark issued a statement saying the Liberals intend to form a government. Green Leader Andrew Weaver said the major demands his party will be seeking include being granted party status, despite the Greens are one seat short of official status.
