BC Liberal MLA Murray Coell (Saanich North and the Islands) has announced he is not running in the next election. He was first elected in 1996.
This is not too surprising. He was narrowly re-elected in 2009 with 44.9% of the vote, with the NDP candidate, Gary Holman, receiving 44.1% of the vote. Notably, Holman received the NDP nomination for the riding again and stands a very good chance of being elected in 2013.
He is the fifth BC Liberal MLA to announce he is no longer running again.
