No date has been confirmed and it is unclear whether Normandeau would appear publicly at the inquiry or would be met privately by investigators.

Normandeau said in April that she is willing to meet with investigators from the Charbonneau Commission corruption inquiry and Quebec’s anti-corruption police squad.

She left politics in 2011 and chose not to run in the April 7 election.

Julie Boulet was the first sitting provincial politician to take the stand at the Charbonneau Commission. The former Quebec transport minister, who has been a member of the legislature for 13 years, was questioned about her possible involvement in political financing.

The inquiry, which is examining allegations of corruption in the awarding of public construction contracts and links to political financing, has been looking more closely at the provincial level in recent weeks.
