A New Government in Quebec

Seven years after the foundation of his party, Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ), François Legault will lead a majority government since his party succeeded in electing 74 MNAs out of 125. Mr. Legault will thus become the 42nd premier of Quebec and the first in this position to wear the colors of the CAQ. It has been over 50 years since a party other than the Quebec Liberal Party or the Pari Québécois was in power.
