NDP May Not Win Enough Seats To Support Minority Govt.

It is going to be a minority rule in Canada as neither the Liberal Party nor the Conservative Party is going to get the winning number of 170 seats as per all the poll indications.

Meanwhile, the trajectory of New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh in recent weeks as the most favorable leader by most of the polls and the media may not land him to the position of a kingmaker in the formation of the next government in Canada.

That crucial role now belongs to the Parti Quebecois with the projection of 31 seats compared to 24 by the NDP. The Liberal Party is expected to win more seats (143) than the Conservative Party (133).

These numbers are from ‘338 Canada Seat Projection’, a poll model “based on opinion polls, the electoral history of Canadian provinces and demographic data.” The model is the creation of P.J. Fournier, astronomy and physics professor at Cégep de Saint-Laurent in Montréal.
