After a 39-day election campaign, voters in Quebec headed to the polls Monday and elected the Coaltion Avenir Québec (CAQ) to power.
The CAQ, headed by François Legault, won a majority of seats delivering a crushing blow to the Quebec Liberal Party, who had held power for 13 of the last 15 years.
The CAQ was elected in 74 of the province’s 125 ridings, compared to 32 for the Liberals.
The Parti Québécois (PQ) suffered a double blow going from 28 seats to 9 and is once again without a leader, after Jean-François Lisée announced he was stepping down after losing his riding of Rosemont.
Québec Solidaire entered the race with only three seats, but finished the evening with 10 ridings more than tripling in size.
To maintain official party status, a minimum of 12 seats or 20 per cent of the popular vote is required.
Polls closed at 8 p.m. To find out who won in your riding, use our interactive results.
