Oath: QS strongly criticized by the PQ

Oath: QS strongly criticized ; by the PQ

Pascal Bérubé, MP for Matane-Matapédia for the Parti Québécois.

While Québec solidaire (QS) has finally decided to take the oath to the king, Parti Québécois (PQ) deputy Pascal Bérubé does not hide his frustration: he criticizes the decision of the Solidaires and affirms that there was no collaboration on their part with the PQ in this matter. Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois says the opposite.

“Québec solidaire has therefore decided not to collaborate with the Parti québécois on this issue and instead join the CAQ in this file, which intervenes simultaneously with the negotiations on the budgets for the recognition of the parliamentary groups”, explains the deputy for Matane-Matapédia on Twitter. “Contrary to what Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois claims in the media, his call yesterday was not one of collaboration, but rather to place us before this fait accompli.”

For his part, the solidarity leader Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois wants to push the National Assembly to adopt a bill making the oath to the king optional. It’s reluctantly that its eleven deputies will finally take the oath. This will allow them to enter the chamber and debate with the other elected officials, when they return on November 29.

“We will table a bill to put an end to the oath to the king. To put an end to this archaic obligation, it is necessary to sit. This is what the solidarity people are going to do: enter the National Assembly and table a bill to abolish it as soon as possible, ”explains the solidarity leader in a tweet.

Recall that initially neither the QS deputies nor those of the PQ had taken the oath to the crown when they are sworn in. The PQ then proposed a motion so that the deputies did not have to pledge allegiance to Charles III. For its part, QS had tabled a bill to make this oath optional before the elections. However, this could not be adopted.
