Mario Dumont as premier? Even with a Liberal plurality?

It could easily happen. If Charest loses his own seat (which seems a distinct possibility at this point in the evening), he will probably resign as premier. This would leave the only logical choice for premier as Mario Dumont, even if the Liberals actually win more seats than the ADQ.

Boisclair will resign quickly which would give the option to Charest to resign as well if he chose to. That is, the PQ would support the Liberal governement temporarily since neither party would have a leader and woud not be ready for an election. Moreover, the ADQ is not ready to govern. Tonight is a moral victory for the ADQ, but if the leadership of that party were to be honest with itself, it is not ready for the prime time yet.

Much depends on what Charest decides to do. I voted for him today despite my greivances and wish him the best of luck in delivering a good program to reform the Quebec economy. He does have the option to coninue.

Not sure about Boisclair resigning quickly. He still has a card to play. Boisclair can offer Dumont the chance to topple Charest in return for concessions. Only Dumont can deliver Quebec the powers needed to become an independent nation state in the near future. This is what Boisclair needs to play on before the PQ old guard disposes of him.
