MONTREAL — The chief organizer of the Quebec Liberal Party, Jean-François Helms, says he will not renew his mandate.
Helms says today in a post on social media that he informed Leader Dominique Anglade and party president Rafael Primeau-Ferraro of his decision this morning.
The announcement comes at the end of a tumultuous week for the Liberal party.
On Thursday, one of the party's longest-serving members, Marie-Claude Nichols, was kicked out of the Liberal caucus after a disagreement over shadow cabinet positions.
Helms was the chief organizer of Anglade's spring 2022 leadership campaign — a race she won by acclamation — and he was named the party's chief organizer in July 2020.
The Liberal party suffered its worst defeat in history, in terms of popular vote, in Quebec's Oct. 3 election.
