    MONTREAL | The Parti québécois (PQ) will carry the announcement of its candidate in the riding of Gouin, in Montreal, on Sunday afternoon, while there’s still almost a year before the provincial elections of 2018.</strong>

    On the website of the party we can already read that it is Olivier Gignac who will have the task of facing the current mp for the constituency, the solidarity Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois. The latter had been elected head of the district last may in a by-election where he had obtained more than 69 % of the votes, after that the PQ was decided not to present a candidate.

    The riding of Gouin had previously been represented by Françoise David, who had left vacant in retiring from the world of politics.

    32-years-old, Mr. Gignac holds a bachelor’s degree in communication and a master’s degree in administration. He is currently the chairman of the board of directors of Magneto and has collaborated in the Construction of the social economy, one can read its page on Facebook.

    The leader of the PQ, Jean-François Lisée, should deliver a speech on the occasion of the announcement of this nomination. “Let’s be many in order to send a clear message to our adversaries that we are always present in the force-field!” invited the party by reaching out to its activists.
