FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Green Party of Nova Scotia (GPNS) will be electing a new Leader and Deputy Leader this week. Under the GPNS Constitution members will vote for a “Leadership ticket” which is made up of two people, one running for Leader and one for Deputy Leader. There will be one pair of contestants, Anthony Edmonds for Leader and Jo-Ann Roberts for Deputy Leader, and as per GPNS rules, members have the option to vote for the pair or ‘none of the above’. A previous contestant pair withdrew from the race in September.
The results will be announced at 4 pm on October 23rd at a Special General Meeting. Members can attend in person at the Sackville Heights Community Centre (all Covid-19 protocols will be strictly adhered to) or via Zoom.
