A péquiste swearing-in

Hon. Pierre Duchesne
Lieutenant Governor of Quebec

The swearing-in of the péquiste government took place in the afternoon of 19 September 2012 behind closed doors in the presence of the Honourable Lieutenant Governor, representative in Quebec of H.M. the Queen. The Canadian flag had symbolically been removed from the ornate Red Room of the legislature where the ceremony took place.

Premier Marois lost no time reaffirming the separatist aspirations of the government. One minister was designated to a post for Canadian Intergovernmental Affairs and Sovereignist Governance. Léo Blouin-Bureau (Laval-des-Rapides), while not in cabinet, was named Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier for Youth.
