Premier Christy Clark has attacked the Opposition New Democrats as irrelevant and without principles during a question period where she offered her support for the one-member Green Party.

Clark clearly was not impressed with the NDP's attempts to make connections about past and current Liberals involved in the so-called quick wins scandal that was meant to court ethnic voters before the May 2013 election.

Despite the demotion of a former cabinet minister and a review that found that government staff were misused to conduct Liberal Party work, the Liberals captured their fourth consecutive mandate.

Clark says the NDP decision to revisit a three-year-old issue that was fully debated rather than explore current issues of mine safety and ferry fares, convinces her the Green Party represented by lone member Andrew Weaver should be granted official opposition status.

Following question period, Clark suggested the NDP should consider itself as an irrelevant party in a desperate search for an identity.

NDP Leader John Horgan was not in the legislature during question period.
