VANCOUVER, B.C. – B.C. Liberal Party Leader Andrew Wilkinson announced that he will be stepping down as Party Leader, following the initial results of the 2020 Provincial General Election.
During a press conference, on Monday, Wilkinson says he will stay on as leader until a successor is chosen and will be focusing on rebuilding the party.
“So today, we begin the challenging and exciting process of rebuilding the party and we do so with a very strong base of elected members in the legislature and a strong membership throughout British Columbia.”
According to initial results from Elections B.C., John Horgan and the NDP won a majority government with 55 seats, while the B.C. Liberals formed opposition with 29 seats, and the B.C. Greens with three seats.
The number of seats elected are not official as the results from the final half-million votes will not be known for a few weeks as mail-in ballots cannot be counted until 13 days after election day to prevent voter fraud.
