Parti Québécois: a long marathon ends

It is this evening that we will know the identity of the new leader of the Parti Québécois.

Four candidates are in the running, Sylvain Gaudreault, Guy Nantel, Paul St-Pierre Plamondon and Frédéric Bastien.

The outcome of this race was to be known last June, but was postponed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It ultimately lasted nine months, becoming the longest in the history of the Parti Quebecois.

A total of 35,800 members had the right to vote and they could exercise it until 3 p.m. Friday.

Pascal Bérubé had been acting chief for two years, that is, since the departure of Jean-François Lisée.

The special opens with the unveiling of the new leader of the Parti Québécois and starts at 7 p.m. on LCN.
