The Conservative Party will not have access to the National Assembly
The leader of the Conservative Party of Quebec, Éric Duhaime, meets with the East Montreal Chamber of Commerce.
The Conservative Party of Quebec will not have access to the National Assembly, because no elected representative represents it there, decided the President of the National Assembly, Nathalie Roy. That’s what she told Conservative Leader Éric Duhaime in a letter last Tuesday obtained by the Journal de Montréal.
“Without minimizing the fact that a large number of voters supported your party during the last general elections, I see myself unable to respond favorably to your requests since you are not an elected member of the National Assembly and no other parliamentarian is not. represents your party there,” reads the letter from Ms. Roy’s cabinet to Éric Duhaime.
The Conservative leader, who had not obtained any seats for his party, demanded three privileges reserved for elected officials: he asked for the right to hold press activities within the walls of the National Assembly, to have access to an office to receive guests and to be able to participate in meetings private briefings on reports or budgets.
