OTTAWA – The Green Party is looking for an interim leader to take the helm ahead of a new leadership election among its members.
The troubled side, besieged by infighting and snipers, accepted the resignation of Annamie Paul, who resigned last week.
She said leading the Green party was the worst period of her life and had given her membership rights to the party.
The Greens have called for applications for a temporary interim leadership position to take over from Paul, before a new leader can be found.
Elizabeth May, who before Paul was the Green frontman, was urged to take on the role but declined, in order to focus on her work as an MP.
Jo-Ann Roberts, who took over as interim leader in 2019 when Mrs May stepped down, has been urged to return to the role, but is focusing on writing a book on democracy.
The party returned only two MPs at the election and was beset by financial problems.
Last night, the party called for applications for the interim leadership position. Applications close Friday at midnight Pacific Time.
