NDP boss Adrian to reveal leadership decision
VANCOUVER - B.C. New Democratic Party Leader Adrian Dix will announce his decision about his future with the party this afternoon.
Dix has called a news conference for 4 p.m. in Vancouver.
He left the British Columbia legislature in July saying he would be taking time to reflect on his political future in the wake of the party's unexpected defeat to the Liberals in the provincial election in May.
Since then, there have been calls for Dix's resignation, and for the resignations of several other senior party officials.
Dix was elected NDP leader in April 2011 after former leader Carole James quit amid an ongoing caucus struggle over her leadership.
NDP finance critic Mike Farnworth, who finished second to Dix two years ago, has said he is awaiting Dix's announcement before making public statements about a possible run for the top job.
