According to our information, Harley Lounsbury’s application was rejected due to errors in filling the application form.

Minutes after the denial was announced, a stunned Liberal leader, Dominique Anglade, announced that the party’s legal committee would examine the possibility of challenging the decision by Quebec’s chief electoral officer.

“I don’t have the details, we’re going to have internal conversations… serious internal conversations, but I don’t have the details on that,” he said.

The Liberal leader described the situation as “unacceptable”.

The party filed 6 nominations on Saturday, the deadline to formalize everything.

The organization had to run a rush in the last days to confirm its candidates. On Wednesday, 73 names were confirmed out of 125. The next day, PLQ officially fielded 91 candidates.
