Annamie Paul’s job remains up in the air following an emergency meeting of the Green Party’s governing body.
Instead of making a no-confidence motion, officials asked Paul and MP Paul Manly to arrange a joint statement where she rejects previous remarks from former adviser Noah Zatzman and reiterates her support for the caucus.
If that doesn’t happen, Paul’s spokesperson says there could be a vote of no-confidence in the leader July 20.
The Green’s governing body will also hold a virtual general meeting of party members August 21, further raising questions about Paul’s tenure.
The Green caucus is down to two after Jenica Atwin’s recent defection to the Liberals.
