The 1994 Quebec Provincial Elections: Party Realignment, Independence Referendum, or More of the Same

Quebec Studies (1994), 19, (1), 1–16.

Abstract

La mesure dans laquelle les élections provinciales de 1994 au Québec représente une rupture sérieuse avec le passé, un réalignement réel de lélectorat, et serait un indicateur du soutien croissant en faveur d'une transformation en profondeur du système, constitue le point essentiel de l'analyse de cet article. Les résultats qui y sont présentés démontrent qu'il ne semble pas y avoir eu au Québec de coupure importante par rapport au comportement électoral précédent.
