Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois to be the new face of Quebec Solidaire?
Quebec Solidaire may be getting a longstanding wish granted.
Late last night, former student leader Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois announced he will reveal this week his political intentions.
"I will hold a press conference concerning my political future this Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Pointe-à-Callière Museum," he wrote on Twitter on Monday evening.
It has been no secret Nadeau-Dubois has long been courted by the left-wing sovereigntist Quebec Solidaire party, dating back to his leadership role during the 2012 student strike for free tuition, and sources tell Radio-Canada and La Presse he will run in the Montreal riding of Gouin next election and is vying to be the party's new spokesman.
Quebec Solidaire does not have a traditional leadership structure, but has two spokespeople—one male and one female—to voice the party's platform.
Manon Massé announced this weekend she will be looking to replace party founder Francoise David as the party's spokeswoman.
The party will officially confirm its candidate for the Gouin riding on March 26. Party members will choose their new mouthpieces at a May 21 congress.
