Quebec election 2022: “We got a clear message – keep going!” Legault says of “historic victory”
CA, 04 Oct 2022
François Legault‘s Coalition Avenir Québec will form the next government in Quebec after cruising to a commanding majority for a second time, with an even stronger mandate for the next four years.
Global News projected the victory Monday night after a five-week election campaign that saw party leaders crisscross the province in hopes of appealing to voters and their base of supporters.
In describing a “historic victory” in his speech, Legault said, “We got a clear message – keep going!”
Legault’s party jumped to an early lead, with the call coming in around the 15-minute mark after polls closed on election night. As of 11:25 p.m, the CAQ was leading or elected in around 89 ridings — a significant rise from the party’s standing of 76 seats before parliament rose for the summer. In Quebec, a party needs 63 seats to form a majority.
