The three provincial parties nominated by the candidates have chosen a selection key from Nanaimo to allow the BC balance of power. in the legislature.
The NDP nomination meeting on Sunday, MP was the candidate of Sheila Malcolmson, when the seat was vacated when the NDP MLA was elected Mayor Leonard Krog Nanaimo.
Malcolmson, Nanaimo-Ladysmith's NDP National Resigns, will run by voters, hopes he can jump over federal and provincial policy.
"We have made great progress in being B.C. NDP power. We have great optimism in our community," he said.
Nanaimo has been a NDP fortress for some time. But the elections are traditionally more difficult.
If NDP liberals lose the seat, NDP-Green cooperation and Liberals will have 43 seats. An unplanned situation is expected and it will begin in the general elections.
"The stakes are very high, we know that the liberals will throw away everything they have won," Malcolmson said.
"We are aware that they want to destroy this government and create general elections. We will always take care of the Nanaimo electoral support."
The Liberals quickly negotiated Nanaimo at the Tony Harris company in early November.
While the seat is significant for political reasons, Harris has said that his campaign focuses on the struggles with the city, such as homeless people, poverty and health services.
"It's a Nanaimo campaign and I think that the lens is based on our community at any time of the history, which is very important because our community has for a long time been excluded," he said.
More sets of elbows & # 39;
B.C. As a candidate at the 24-hour voting session of the Veronica Ney candidate, Verdes finished the session on Saturday.
Neyren's father Nanaimo mayor was for more than two decades and MLA for four years.
"You feel like a soap opera to say the truth, I think they have two well-known names and, of course, my name is quite a name," he said.
The race might be the same as the NDP power balance, Ney said he was not potentially distracting the vote.
Instead, he said he would put another voice in the legislature that will protect the environment and promote climate change policy.
"We can not continue in the direction we are going to continue. We need to turn the boat around now, which will allow Greens to make an extra elbow in the legislature," he said.
No date selected to select.
However, Prime Minister John Horga has said that in early February he wants to see a provincial budget quote, candidates preparing to start the campaign in January.
