Opposition house leader Bernard Drainville tells reporters it is time for the caucus to publicly reaffirm its loyalty toward Péladeau.
Both a former PQ minister as well as an ex-PQ leadership candidate have come out publicly against Péladeau, who has encountered personal and political problems in the past few weeks.
Recent reports alleged Péladeau was involved in tax havens abroad when he was president of media giant Quebecor Inc. – allegations he denies.
The PQ leader is also off work for a second consecutive day following the announcement of his separation from TV producer Julie Snyder less
than six months after their high-profile wedding.
