”In the end,” Weaver says, ”we had to make a difficult decision,” describing the negotiations his party held with the NDP and Liberals the past three weeks.
Three Green caucus has voted in favour while the NDP’s scheduled to vote Tuesday.
While details of the agreement won’t be officially released until then, it reportedly would give the NDP support of 44 MLAs, the minimum required to have a majority in the 87-seat legislature.
Christy Clark remains premier for now.
She can ask the Lt-Governor for the chance to introduce a throne speech, resign or request to dissolve the legislature and hold another election.
The Liberals fell one seat shy of winning a majority government in the election May 9.
