A statement announcing the decision also included the disappointment of Christy Clark stepping down earlier in the day.
Prominent former TV reporter Jas Johal, first elected to the BC legislature in the spring election that set off events that have ousted the Liberals from power, says he is thinking about a leadership run but has not made any final decisions.
Clark said in the statement that she is proud of everything she has accomplished, including working to make B.C. the leader in Canada's economy and creating more than 200,000 jobs.
"I am certain that British Columbia's best days lie ahead", she said.
Clark led her party to a 43-seat win in the 87-seat legislature in the May election, but the government lost a confidence vote after the New Democrats and Greens formed an agreement to govern. "Because British Columbians can, through hard work, achieve anything they set their minds to - and the B.C. Liberal Party is the embodiment of that ambitious and generous spirit". Weaver struck a deal with new Premier John Horgan and the BC NDP to form a minority government in late May. To admit that the B.C. Liberals going forward will be better off without her as leader must have been even more hard.
Coleman said the job of a premier takes 60 to 70 hours per week and he believes Clark wants to spend more time with her teenage son and her family.
"Me, as an individual, I will value her friendship for the rest of my life".
"She's obviously done some soul-searching and she knows this party is in good hands; we're really deep with the people that we have in the party and she put it out there that she thinks the long term benefit to the party is if she steps aside". This experience illustrated what we can achieve when members of this house work together.
"I'm shocked, and I think it's sad that B.C. doesn't get to have the benefit of Christy Clark for another few more years", he said, speaking by phone from Cranbrook.
"I think this is a great time to focus on renewal and we need a substantial policy discussion".
The Liberal Party has not determined when a leadership race will be held.
Former B.C. Liberal MLA Bill Bennett described Clark's resignation as a loss for both the party and the province, strongly dismissing any suggestion the party forced her out.
Rich Coleman talks about his time serving with Christy Clark who announced she was resigning as Liberal Party leader Friday.
"I told the caucus this morning I have no intentions at this time to seek the leadership, and if I ever did change, I would step down", Coleman said. Penticton MLA Dan Ashton is to his immediate left.
