Éric Duhaime gave a speech at the opening of the convention of the Conservative Party of Quebec, Saturday in Lévis.
In May, the leader of the Coalition Avenir Québec, François Legault, obtained an approval rate of 98.6%. Two months earlier, the leader of the Parti Québécois (PQ), Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, had reached a rate of 98.5%.
Saturday, the Conservative leader did not want to comment on what he would do if he obtained a very low score . I'm going to let the members vote, he said.
At a press conference Friday in Quebec, Éric Duhaime said he didn't care. ;expect a stratospheric result like that of the Prime Minister. Instead, he thinks he'll get a decent score.
A conservative source estimates the leader's approval rating could be between 75% and 85%. In 2005, Bernard Landry slammed the door of the PQ after obtaining 76% support in a vote of confidence.
L' Former Conservative MP Claire Samson estimates that Éric Duhaime could obtain around 85% support. I think the party is moving in the right direction, she maintains.
