    While the liberal member for Jean-Lesage André Drolet has confirmed on Thursday that he does not intend to seek reappointment to a new term of office, the leader of the parti québecois Jean-François Lisée is confident that it can wrest this constituency in the next elections as well as other in the region of Quebec.

    In the margin of a speech delivered on the occasion of the annual general meeting of the Parti québécois in the county of Jean-Lesage, Mr. Lisée said he intends to convince many voters in favour of Québec solidaire (QS) and the Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ) to vote for his party.

    “I think there are a lot of voters who are parkés to the CAQ at this time […], they want a change, he said. Is it that there are enough voters in Jean-Lesage and elsewhere in Quebec who say : ”Yes, what I want is to be sure that we will have quality services for the election of the Parti québécois? I think the answer is yes.”

    The PQ leader said that he will appeal to voters and activists QS in view of the election. “[…] vote for QS, it is helping the election of the CAQ and the liberal Party. This year, it is necessary to say it respectfully,” he said to the sixty or so activists on the spot.
