Majority for Charest

Charest won a majority government tonight with a few seats more than the 63 he needed. Parti Québécois did much better than expected with around 51 seats, which will be seen as a victory for Marois. The ADQ has dropped to 17% with 7 seats and Dumont announced that he will step down in a few months and quit politics. Amir Khadir from Québec Solidaire won a seat so the velvet left will have a voice at the National Assembly, which will be highly entertaining.

I do not have much time to blog these days as I have several finals in the next week and a half and I am sick. Posting will be light in the coming days.
