Advisory committee


The advisory committee is composed of the Chief Electoral Officer and three representatives from each of the parties sitting in the Assemblée nationale. The Chief Electoral Officer chairs this committee and directs its work. The leader of each party appoints the persons who represent their party with at least one of them being a member of the Assemblée nationale.

The advisory committee provides its opinion on matters relating to the Election Act, with the exception of electoral representation.

At the request of the chairperson or one third of the members, the committee may meet as often as necessary to carry out its functions and duties.

The advisory committee may be assisted by technical committees, made up of representatives from political parties and Élections Québec staff. These technical committees are responsible for reviewing any matters referred to them by the advisory committee.
