DescriptionParti 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.
