Manon Massé will not seek a new mandate as female spokesperson for Québec solidaire (QS) and will leave her post after the QS convention scheduled for next November. The one who replaced Françoise David in 2017 after her departure from political life and who has held this position since is holding a press conference in her constituency on this subject on Tuesday morning.
She specifies that her role as door women's voice, combined with the many hours of parliamentary work, was too heavy a burden to bear. She wants to focus more on work in the field, a facet she has always appreciated.
Among the elected officials who could replace her are Ruba Ghazal, MNA for Mercier, Christine Labrie, MNA for Sherbrooke , and Alejandra Zaga Mendez, MP for Verdun. However, the political party could select an unelected member of the National Assembly.
Ms. Massé will remain the Member of Parliament for Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques until the end of her mandate in 2026 and wishes to be running again in the next provincial election.
