G23-C001 Ensuring Leaders or Co-leaders are elected, or appointed by FC
Note from Proposal Shepherds: This proposal is 1 of 4 Constitutional amendment proposals and 1 Directive proposal on Co-Leadership. The Policy Development Process Committee recommends reviewing the comments posted by Green Party of Canada members, and the Proposal Shepherds, under each Co-Leadership proposal in the WeDecide Workshop: D001 , C001 , C002 , C003 , C004
This proposal aims to modify the constitution in order to allow for the possibility of co-leadership, and to ensure that if members vote to allow co-leadership, no one can become leader or co-leader without having been elected to that position, in conformity with the Green party's dedication to participatory democracy.
This proposal amends the definition of Leader in Article 7 Official Standing and Definitions as follows:
7.1.2 Leader: the Member or members elected to the position of leader or co-leader or appointed by Federal Council to the position of interim leader in accordance to Bylaw 2.1.8, and filed Leader pursuant to the Canada Elections Act. If there are two elected co-leaders, they will collaborate with Federal Council to determine who among them is filed Leader pursuant to the Canada Elections Act.
