The article says Michael remains an MHA, but I doubt she'll run in the next election. If a new leader needs a seat, she'll step (or be forced) aside, I guess.

UPDATE: Michael steps down, says party needs new leadership to grow

(Video of Michael's appearance before the media today:)

She says she's running again but I doubt it'll happen. Her polling numbers in her district are supposedly not great but a new leader could probably hold the seat.

Not sure where you get the idea that Michael has poor polling numbers in her district. She has had the strongest election results of the three New Democtrats who have held the seat and is widely perceived to be unbeatable in her district.
