Incumbent Premier

Philippe Couillard
Liberal

The 42nd Quebec general election is tentatively scheduled for October 1, 2018 to elect members to the National Assembly of Quebec.

Under the province's fixed election date law, passed in 2013, the election is to be held on the first Monday in October of the fourth calendar year following the last day of the previous Legislature,[1] setting the date for October 1, 2018. However, the chief electoral officer can change the election date in the event of a natural disaster. Furthermore, the Lieutenant Governor can call an election sooner should the premier request one, or in the event the National Assembly is dissolved by a motion of no confidence.[2] Such a dissolution is unlikely as the current government has a majority.

Note:

The party avoids formally designating David and Fontecilla as co-leaders, as the party's power is held by the general meetings of the members and a board of 16 directors; the de jure leader recognized by the Chief Electoral Officer of Quebec (DGE) is Pierre-Paul St-Onge.[22]
