Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won re-election. Canadian voters delivered Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a second term in office but not a majority in Parliament.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won re-election, overcoming recent scandals that had damaged his reputation as a champion of clean governance and diversity to defeat his conservative rival.
But he emerges from Monday’s election with a weakened hold on power that will force him to rely on support from other parties to pass legislation.
Preliminary results Tuesday indicate Mr. Trudeau’s Liberals had won or were leading in races for 157 seats in the national legislature, short of the 170 required for a majority. The Conservative Party led by Andrew Scheer was in second place with 121 seats.
Started the morning thanking Montrealers for their support, just like I did in 2015. I know we have a lot more work ahead of us. pic.twitter.com/aCmgkwKpGP
