Nearly five years after forming a government in British Columbia, John Horgan will announce at 1:30 p.m. PT that he plans to step down as premier.

This follows weeks of speculation around his health and political future.

The 62-year-old was officially sworn in as premier on July 18, 2017, following a confidence vote in the B.C. legislature on June 28, 2017.

The BC NDP and the BC Greens voted together to defeat former Premier Christy Clark and Lt.-Gov Judith Guichon asked Horgan to govern with the support of the Greens.

The new premier will serve until the next provincial election, currently scheduled for the fall of 2024.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
