DescriptionThe new head of the Green party is going to run in one of the two byelections Prime Minister Stephen Harper called on Sunday.

Elizabeth May, who won the Green party leadership in August, will run in London North Centre on Nov. 27, CBC News reported Sunday.

But a Conservative cabinet minister, who did not run in the Jan. 23 general election, but was appointed to the Senate so the government had a representative from Montreal, will not run in the second byelection on the same date.

No Conservative candidates were elected in Montreal ridings, so Harper appointed Michel Fortier to be Minister of Public Works and Government Services.
