|Description||Parti Quebecois Leader Pauline Marois has won support for the idea of dropping a requirement to hold a referendum on sovereignty within six months if her party forms a government. |
The PQ held its national council meeting Saturday in Saint-Hyacinthe, and her decision was supported by delegates.
It was the first PQ meeting since Marois became leader in June.
There were 17 different proposals before the council on how to promote sovereignty. Marois won delegates over to her side, after she dropped her notion of using a "national conversation" to replace the referendum.
