Ravi Palma to run for NDP in Langford-Juan de Fuca by-election

Current SD62 board chair and provincial staff are running to fill John Horgan’s seat

Ravi Parmar has announced he will run for the NDP to fill the seat vacated by outgoing MP John Horgan.

Parmar has served on the SD62 Board of Directors since 2014 and has been re-elected in 2018 and 2022. He has been chair since 2017. Parmar also serves as Chief of Staff to the Office of the Minister (Employment, Economic Development and Innovation) of Brenda Bailey. Parmar has worked for a number of ministers in the provincial government and was previously Horgan’s constituency assistant.

Hogan resigned as MLA for Langford-Juan de Fuca on March 31 after a lengthy political career that included more than five years as B.C. premier.

From 2005 until last month, Hogan represented the constituency in multiple iterations and won nearly 68 percent of the vote in 2020. For years, the district has leaned heavily toward the New Democrats.

Palma is the second candidate to declare for the upcoming by-election. BC Health Care Matters founder and organizer Camille Currie announced she will be running on April 6.

A by-election date has not yet been set.
