Rana Bokhari is staying on as leader of Manitoba’s Liberal party.
Officials confirmed she will continue to lead the party following a private meeting with the board of directors Thursday night. President Paul Hesse says no one raised concerns about Bokhari staying on.
But even if the Liberals had wanted Bokhari out, she would have to step down on her own. Mike Brown, communications director for the Manitoba Liberals told Global News the party constitution does not allow them to remove the leader but the decision can be taken to a vote in the annual general meeting in 2017.
Bokhari led the Liberals to a triple seat gain in the Manitoba Legislature on election night from one to three seats.
However she failed to win a seat for herself after losing in Fort Rouge to Wab Kinew of the NDP.
