This is what we have in B.C.
A) a non-elected person wanting to be premier
B) a non-elected person being sworn in as Premier
C) a non-elected premier selecting, without authority to do so (at least in a democracy) a cabinet consisting of elected MLAs, rendering such appointments, in my view, null and void.
What happens to these appointments should our non-elected premier lose her byelection?
Presently our non-elected premier has only the right to occupy the party leader’s chair in the offices of the Liberal Party of B.C.
The premier’s seat in the House must presently be considered as vacant.
