Justin Trudeau will remain Canadian Prime Minister, but his party has suffered significant losses. Maybe the liberals will not be the strongest force in the lower house anymore. After initial projections, the party lost its majority, but the prime minister will be able to form a minority government. The Conservatives thus made gains in some provinces, but they could not grow as much as they had hoped.

Trudeau would become Prime Minister for the second time. He cannot repeat his great success of 2015

According to first forecasts, the Liberal Party comes to 33.5 and the Conservative Party to 34.2 percent. Coalition partners of the Liberals could become the New Democratic Party with 15.2 and the Greens with 6.1 percent.

Trudeau has been able to deliver some election promises

Trudeau could only raised the votes for his projects and stay in office with a genuine minority government. In the elections, separatist Bloc Quebec came in lime light by scoring 8.7 percent of the vote. The official election results and the distribution of seats will not be known until Tuesday.

The Canadian House of Commons currently has 338 seats, the majority would need 170 seats or more. According to initial reports, several ministers from the previous Cabinet lose their parliamentary mandates.

Trudeau would become Prime Minister for the second time. He cannot repeat his great success of 2015. He brought his party a historic victory at the time when voters catapulted them from 36 to 184 seats in the lower house. The son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau was initially considered a progressive pioneer. Trudeau was the country’s first head of government, giving half of the Cabinet posts to women. Most of the ministers he called were under 50 years old, two were from the First Nations of the country and three were Sikhs.

In his reign, Trudeau has been able to deliver some election promises, such as the legalization of marijuana or the development of grants for parents. But he failed to deliver important projects. Trudeau’s image as a reformer has cracked in recent years. So, he wanted to consolidate the budget, which he did not succeed – and an electoral reform failed. In asylum policy, Trudeau disappointed many voters as he tightened the rules this year for people who had already applied in a safe third country.

Many areas of conflict will continue to occupy Trudeau, especially since he has been depended on votes from the New Democrats of the Greens. Trudeau is also driving the expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline against fierce resistance from environmentalists and indigenous people. It is to transport oil from tar sands from the province of Alberta to the west coast, the degradation is extremely harmful to the environment.

During the election campaign, Trudeau repeatedly said in recent weeks that voters had earned a “progressive government” – commentators noted that he was not talking so often about a “liberal government” and citizens once before on the minority government seemed to agree. Trudeau’s current industry-friendly policy will not make the necessary compromises easier.
