Encyclopedia > Quebec general election, 1966

In the Quebec general election on June 5, 1966, the Union Nationale under Daniel Johnson, Sr. defeated the incumbent Quebec Liberal Party under Jean Lesage.


In terms of the number of seats won, the election was one of the closest in recent history, with the UN winning 56 seats to the Liberal's 50. Generally, Quebec's first past the post electoral system tends to produce strong disparities in the number of seats won even if the popular vote is fairly close. The Liberals won a greater share of the popular vote (6.5 percentage points more) but still won fewer seats.


The 1966 election saw the pro-independence Rassemblement pour l'indépendance nationale and Ralliement national obtain a combined total of just under 9% of the popular vote (but no seats).


Daniel Johnson would die in office a couple of years later and was succeeded by Jean-Jacques Bertrand.
