QUEBEC – The Parti Quebecois has added a tenth seat at the provincial legislature after winning a recount in an eastern Quebec riding.

The sovereigntist party had contested the results in Gaspe and sought a judicial recount after the Oct. 1 vote.

Late Wednesday, the PQ’s Meganne Perry-Melancon was officially awarded the seat by 41 votes over Liberal candidate Alexandre Boulay.

Boulay had initially been announced the winner by 132 votes.

Both parties took to social media to acknowledge the recount results late Wednesday.

The result puts the PQ in a tie with Quebec solidiare in terms of seats, but the PQ becomes the second opposition party at the national assembly because of slightly higher popular vote.
