Pauline Marois and the Parti québécois will form Québec’s new government

I’m in Mexico City’s airport about to board a flight to Washington, but La Presse and other outlets in Québec are calling it: The Parti québécois will win the election, form the next government (right now projected as a minority).  Premier Jean Charest’s Parti liberal du Québec will finish a strong second, and the Coalition avenir Québec follows far behind in seats, but close behind in total vote percentage.

It’s three-vote margin in Sherbrooke, Charest’s own election district.
