Toronto (SD) – The results of Canada’s parliamentary election, which concluded yesterday, are said to be similar to those of the 2019 general election.
The election, which was called early by the leader of the ruling Liberal Party, Justin Trudeau, was expected to bring about political change, but that did not happen, after outrage over his decision in calling an early election.
The Liberal Party is returning to power without a majority, following voter outrage over his hasty election.
“The moment we face demands real, important change, and you have given this Parliament and this government clear direction.” said Trudeau.
The leader of the Conservative party Erin O’Toole, failed to get more votes than his predecessor had in parliament, partly because of lack of political recognition and being labeled to harbour extreme political views.
“If Justin Trudeau thinks he can threaten Canadians with another election in 18 months, the Conservative Party will be ready. Whenever that day comes, I will be ready to lead Canada’s Conservatives.” O’Toole said.
The leader of the NPD Jagmeet Singh, for his part, did not get more seats in the Parliament.
“Friends, I want you to know that our fight will continue. I also want you to know that we are going to keep on fighting to make sure that the super wealthy pay their fair share,” Singh said last night.
Adding “To all of your struggling, we see you, we hear you,”
As many as five Liberal and NDP MPs ran for Parliament, with Ahmed Hussein, a former minister in Justin’s government, winning.
Canadian political analysts say voters are now opting for political parties to share power in their fight against economic fallout due to Covid-19 Pandemic.
