Towards a Trudeau Minority Government in Canada. The Liberal Party of the outgoing Prime Minister topped the legislative elections of Monday, October 21, according to the projections of several media and the partial results published by the electoral commission. His score would not be enough to hope for an absolute majority.
The polls of recent days showed the Liberals side-by-side with their main rivals, Andrew Scheer's Conservatives.
Justin Trudeau remained discreet about his options if he does not manage to obtain a majority. In Canada, minority governments have rarely been in power for more than two and a half years. If such a scenario looms, the Prime Minister could slow down even more his reforms that have already after a single mandate disappointed his most loyal supporters.
