WATCH: Liberals choose candidate to run against GND in Gouin by-election

The Quebec Liberals have chosen the party's youth wing leader to represent them in the upcoming Gouin byelection.

Jonathan Marleau will be running against Quebec Solidaire's Gabriel Nadeau Dubois in a vote that must be held by June 19.

Marleau is in for a tough fight.  The Liberals haven't won this riding since the early 1970's.

Quebec Solidaire has held the former PQ stronghold since 2012, winning the riding in the last election with more than 51 percent of the vote.

The PQ has said it will not run a candidate in the riding, while the CAQ has yet to decide.
