Éric Duhaime invites strategic voting | Elections Quebec 2022
< p class="sc-v64krj-0 knjbxw">Conservative leader Éric Duhaime speaks in front of his campaign bus on Saturday in the riding of Chauveau.
Leader of the Conservative Party of Quebec and candidate in Chauveau, Éric Duhaime, calls for a strategic vote on the eve of the opening of the vote early.
It is important that we are represented in the National Assembly. I urge all Chauveau Democrats to vote Conservative. […] I want to tell you this: you can make all the difference, you have the power to make things change for real, launched the leader in his constituency on Sunday.
Because of the first-past-the-post system, the party needs to win the most votes in a riding to hopefully elect a Conservative candidate.
An interesting percentage in several constituencies does not guarantee the entry of the PCQ into the Blue Room.
We would have between 16 and 20% of the voting intentions. Projection firms, including Quebec 125, often give us zero MPs. How is it that a party that will potentially get one vote in five has zero MPs out of 125? It doesn't make any sense. We would end up with the least proportional Parliament in Quebec. It would be very paradoxical.
Éric Duhaime once again accused the Coalition Avenir Québec of having abandoned its reform of the voting system.
The Conservative, however, refused to formally commit to reforming the voting system, if elected. I do not want to add my name to the list of politicians who lie about the reform of the world of ballot, concluded the leader.
