His party did worse than expected from opinion polls, which saw them at gaining about a third of the vote.
Since being elected in 2018, the Coquista government has often faced accusations of arrogance. A prime example of this is the departure of the Prime Minister by instructing the Cubans on which party to vote for in the federal election.
To hear Mr. Legalt’s argument that, as he did this week, he will rule two more times, which is not even the first, is another clear example.
An experienced politician, the Prime Minister should know that the political context can change very quickly. Four years in politics is permanent. When he was elected in 2018, he had hoped for many changes for Quebec, never believing that Mr. Legalt would become prime minister for the epidemic.
Thus, the two “old” parties facing him, PQ and PLQ, collapsed. However, it cannot be ruled out that they are being rebuilt, and that the CAQ has been losing feathers for years.
The honeymoon between Mr. Legalt and the Cubes, which is still extraordinary, does not even exclude the fact that it ends before the third period.
In the municipal scene, in Quebec, the outgoing mayor Regis Labyum, whose support rate has made any good politician salivate, this trend has fallen on deaf ears.
Mr. LaBeoum, who will soon end his fourth term, has admitted the mistake himself. He said his close guard, who had long been friends, had warned him and would bring him back to the cowshed.
Influenced by a political entourage tainted with arrogance, it seems that Mr. Legalt also wants a meeting with his closest guard.
