Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gained a moderate advantage in Monday's federal elections, which will allow him to form a minority government, Canadian television networks said.
According to TVA and CTV, liberals will not have an absolute majority in the Ottawa Parliament, but they lead in 145 of 338 constituencies, while Andrew Scheer's conservatives win in 106 after 18% of the vote.
CBC and Radio-Canada also anticipate a partial liberal victory.
The Quebec Block separatists are in third position, with 33 seats, against 20 for the New Democratic Party (NDP, left).
All polling stations in six time zones have already closed the ballot.
Despite remaining in office, Trudeau is weakened from these elections and is expected to rely on the support of smaller parties in the House of Commons to remain in power.
Until the elections, the Liberals held 177 seats in Parliament.
Already on Tuesday (22), the Liberal leader may start negotiations with these smaller parties and the first test of the future administration will be the Throne Speech, in which the government submits its legislative program to the vote of Parliament.
Trudeau is likely to be particularly close to NDP, Jagmeet Singh, one of the revelations of these elections, or the Quebec Block, a separatist party run by another campaign revelation, Yves-François Blanchet.
