Monsef Derraji becomes parliamentary leader for the PLQ
Liberal MP for Nelligan, Monsef Derraji.
The Liberal Party of Quebec MP for Nelligan, Monsef Derraji, becomes parliamentary leader in Quebec. He takes the place of Marc Tanguay, who had taken over until last Thursday following the resignation of Dominique Anglade.
He will come up against Simon Jolin-Barrette, parliamentary leader of the Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ), as soon as parliamentary proceedings resume on November 29, after expressing his interest in the leadership of the party . The Liberals will meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in a parliamentary pre-session caucus in Quebec City.
Mystery still hangs over the content of the discussion that took place this weekend between Marc Tanguay, leader acting party, and former Liberal MP Marie-Claude Nichols, now an independent MP. The latter was expelled from Dominique Anglade's caucus after refusing the responsibilities that we wanted to entrust to her. Without Nichols and Anglade, the PLQ finds itself with 19 deputies in the National Assembly.
