The NDP won 43 seats out of 87 in the legislature and needed an agreement with the Greens to form a government “As a government in place and the party with the most seats in the legislature, we have a responsibility to carefully reconsider our next steps.” On June 29, 2017, the new Democrats and Greens united to overthrow the B.C. Liberal government. The problem of a majority government is a lack of accountability. If there has been a time for the government to be accountable, it is now. Faced with the increase in COVID-19 cases, she said the government should focus on the health and well-being of British Columbia and the green economic recovery. Trust is the key to any relationship and Mr. Horgan breaks any confidence that Colombians might have had in his government. Furstenau says she phoned Horgan on Monday night and will have a discussion on the deal “very soon.” “A decision we thought was B.C best today. And that decision was for the B.C.

However, further details of what was agreed by the NDP in exchange for the Greens` support will not be published until the NDP approves the agreement on Tuesday. The newly elected leader of the Green B.C party said a power-sharing agreement with the New Democrats provides the stability needed during the COVID 19 pandemic.

The NDP won 43 out of 87 seats in the legislature, and it needed an agreement with the Greens – who won three constituencies – to form a government. In exchange for the support of the Greens, the PND had to accept a number of conditions, including holding a referendum on electoral reform. “It was a roller coaster for all of us, for all British Colombians of all political convictions.

[Citation required] The Scottish National Party and the Scottish Green Party have reached a confidence and supply agreement in the Scottish Parliament.  The Welsh Labour Party and Plaid Cymru had a similar cooperation agreement in the Welsh Assembly until October 2017.  A coalition government is a more formal agreement than a trust and supply agreement, as members of junior parties (i.e.

In 2005, a similar agreement led Helen Clark`s Labour Party to form a coalition government with the Progressive Party, with the support of the confidence and supply of New Zealand First and United Future.
