Jerome Gabriel has confirmed that he is in the process of being selected as the New Democratic Party (NDP) candidate in the next federal election.
If his candidacy is successful, the 24-year-old will be the NDP candidate in the Louis-Saint-Laurent ride, represented by conservative Gerard Deltell since 2015. In 2011, the NDP had already elected Alexandre Latendress in the constituency.
- Listen to Alexander Moranville-Ovelette’s analysis with Vincent Desuralt on QUB Radio:
Jerome Gabrielle indicates that party officials have not made that decision and no official announcement has been made yet. He doesn’t even like to be interviewed.
The NDP has confirmed that it has received its candidature request. Although the Quebec singer wanted to be a candidate, the party did not give additional details. If his candidature is approved by the party, he can get the nomination.
In 2019, Jerome Gabriel made a political attachment to the NDP candidate in the Louis-Hebert ride.
Jerome Gabrielle first became famous in 2006 at the age of 9 by singing before the Pope in Rome.
Since 2012, Jerome Gabriel has made headlines for the legal battle between him and Mike Ward.
Comedian Jerome made jokes about Gabriel and complained in 2012.
The legal battle between comedian and singer has shifted to the Supreme Court, where Supreme Court judges in Canada are required to rule on freedom of expression. The case was argued last February.
Mike Ward never refused to pay $ 35,000 to Jeremy, a young man with Treacher-Collins syndrome, as compensation for making fun of him on his show.
