Trudeau won second term in Canada elections

Politics A- A A+

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won a second term in Canada’s national elections Monday, losing the majority but delivering unexpectedly strong results despite having been weakened by a series of scandals that tarnished his image as a liberal icon, Associated Press reports.

Trudeau’s Liberal party took most seats in Parliament, giving it the best chance to form a government. Still, falling short of a majority meant they would have to rely on an opposition party to stay in power.

“It’s not quite the same as 2015. It’s not all owing to the leader,” said Robert Bothwell, a professor of Canadian history and international relations at the University of Toronto. “Trudeau is prime minister because the rest of the party was able to pull itself together and prevail. While Trudeau certainly deserves credit for what has happened he’s really going to have to demonstrate qualities that he hasn’t yet shown.”
