    The Parti québécois is not worried despite the results of a survey that the third place in voting intentions in Quebec, to two weeks a great vote of confidence.

    “A poll a year before the election, it’s worth as much as a ticket for the Powerball loser on the day after the draw,” shows Jean-François Lisée, leader of the Parti québécois (PQ).

    A survey of Lightweight – The Journal – The Duty – The Globe and Mail revealed on Saturday that the PQ got only 22 % in voting intentions. The Quebec liberal Party (QLP) is first with 32 %, closely followed by the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) with 28 % and 12% for Québec solidaire (QS).

    “Almost no one “

    Mr. Lisée believes that ” the capacity of prediction of a poll a year before elections, it is almost zero “.

    “We are confident that we have the right answers to the challenges of Quebec. It has changed the Quebec better every time they were in power. People want change and we will propose a pragmatic shift, but that will make the difference, ” he said Saturday, not saying they are not worried in the least.

    The release of the survey comes just two weeks before the vote of confidence for the leader of the PQ. We learn that only 59 % of the supporters pq members believe that it would make the best prime minister.

    QS ” here to stay “

    “There is a recomposition of the political landscape in Quebec, and we note that Québec solidaire is here to stay. […] The big trend is that it increases sustainably the support that it receives from the population, ” says he.
