Once Davis officially stepped down in February, Miller became Premier. He called an election for May 1985, but his campaign was considered disastrous. He elicited controversy when he refused to agree to a television debate with his rivals David Peterson of the Ontario Liberal Party and Bob Rae of the New Democratic Party (NDP). Miller's situation was also made more difficult by Davis' decision to extend public funding for Catholic Separate Schools to grade 13, a decision that had been left to Miller to implement and that was unpopular with some in his party's traditional rural Protestant base.

The election resulted in a minority government, in which the Tories had only four more seats than the Liberals, with the NDP holding the balance of power.
