James Beddome has been re-elected as the Green Party of Manitoba’s leader.
He is set to continue his 12-year stint in the position for at least another two-year term.
Beddome defeated challenger and current deputy-leader Andrea Shalay 70 votes to 56, with three votes for “none-of-the-above,” and two abstentions.
The turnout from the Party’s 182 eligible voting members was 72 per cent.
“I want to thank the membership for continuing to place their trust in me. I also want to thank my campaign team for their support, and my competitor Andrea Shalay for throwing her hat into the race and pushing me to be a better leader,” said Beddome after learning of the results.
“As promised, my main focus will be on continuing to impact politics in Manitoba, growing the membership, and ultimately electing Greens.”
