Quebec election results: What PQ minority rule will mean

The results of the Quebec election are bad news for the winners. Pauline Marois and the Parti Québecois expected to win a majority (63 seats) of the 125 seats. Instead, they fell short (55 seats) winning only 32 per cent of the vote, the second lowest PQ share of the popular vote in the nine elections, since forming government for the first time in 1976 with 41 per cent of the vote. 

Voter turnout was impressive at more than 73 per cent, sharply up from the last election when it was less than 60 per cent.
