    The Quebec liberal Party has made its choice, after the hurried departure on Wednesday of its candidate in Louis-Hébert. Finally it is the former political attaché of Sam Hamad, Ihssane El Ghernati, who will wear the colors.

    The QLP casts its sights on a well-known figure among the activists of the Quebec city region.

    Of moroccan origin, the wife of 51-year-old was the “right arm” of the former minister, Sam Hamad, starting from 2008. The mother of two children, she lives in Quebec since 1995.

    Ms. El Ghernati is also known to be involved in volunteer work in several organizations.

    This development occurred three days after the withdrawal of Éric Tétrault, whose campaign was quickly derailed when the media coverage of a devastating report produced at the request of his former employer, ArcelorMittal.

    The document accused him of having psychological harassment and intimidation in respect of subordinate employees.

    Other candidate

    The next day, the prime minister Philippe Couillard had recognized that the application of Tétrault had become toxic.

    “I don’t think his campaign can continue even one more day “, had reacted to the liberal leader.

    Ihssane El Ghernati will include the new candidate for the Coalition avenir Québec, Geneviève Guilbault, who has worked for eight years as spokesman for the coroner’s Office.

    It succeeds in Louis-Hébert Normand Sauvageau, who has withdrawn due to allegations of psychological harassment.
