It’t is with good humor and class that the leader Dominique Anglade has announced his departure from the leadership of the Liberals on Monday in Montreal. Serene, she admitted to being disappointed with the electoral results of her training. According to her, the Quebec Liberal Party (PLQ) must put aside its internal differences and prioritize socioeconomic issues.

According to her, the party is facing a “headwind”. “We have a great duty to reconnect with the regions of Quebec and with the French-speaking communities. This is a great challenge,” she said at a press conference.

The disputes within the Liberal caucus to which Dominique Anglade refers have been widely publicized. Recently, Dominique Anglade had expelled MP Marie-Claude Nichols from the party, before trying to reinstate her. Other former elected officials have widely criticized the leadership of the PLQ in recent months.

It’s when she took the “true measure” of these results that Ms. Anglade began a “personal reflection”. Discussions with elected officials and party activists finally pushed her to withdraw from the chiefdom. She announced her decision to the party president on Monday morning, before meeting the media in Montreal.
