The ongoing feud destabilizing the Parti Quebecois has given Francois Legault the opportunity to promote his new political party, CTV reports.
The Coalition Avenir Quebec is currently looking to step over the PQ and become the second opposition.
Legault says Quebecers will strongly support the CAQ despite any objections the governing Liberals may have.
However, the National Assembly requires that each party have 12 elected MNAs in order to be recognized as a party.
Legault’s CAQ is three people short.
Over the weekend, the CAQ absorbed the now defunct Action Democratique Quebec.
The National Assembly had exempt the ADQ from their 12-MNA rule during the last election.
Legault requests that his party be allowed to operate under the same set of rules.
