Trudeaus Spekulation auf Mehrheit könnte fehlschlagen
September 9, 2021 -
Seitdem er vorgezogene Wahlen für 20. September angesetzt hat, um von seinem Management der Pandemie zu profitieren und wieder eine Mehrheit im Parlament zu gewinnen, kämpft Kanadas Premierminister Justin Trudeau mit der Wahlmüdigkeit im Land.
Trudeau, 49, has pre-empted the country’s election schedule by two years, reckoning that a majority government is needed to “finish the fight” against the coronavirus.
But since calling the snap election, the Liberal party that he leads in a minority government has slid down the polls. The Conservatives, the main opposition party, have been rising and have a shot at winning the 20 September election.
Trudeau calculated that the Conservatives were weak as the pandemic has limited the profile of their unassuming leader, Erin O’Toole. But with a fourth wave of the coronavirus taking hold in Canada just as children are returning to school, voters are in no mood for a needless ballot.
