    The government Couillard replaces Françoise Mercure, named in 2012 by the government of Pauline Marois at the head of the national capital Commission of Québec by the liberal long-time Marie-Claire Ouellet.

    Ruled out

    Ms. Ouellet, who has been secretary general to the government communication from 2005 to 2012 under the era of Jean Charest, will post on the 11th of September next.

    The one which at the time had been discarded by the government Marois currently occupied the position of associate deputy minister at the ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie.

    Beaten by Hamad

    For her part, Françoise Mercure had been a candidate for the Parti québécois in a by-election in 2008 and was then presented a few months later in Louis-Hébert.

    She had finally been defeated by Sam Hamad.
