The first ever Quebecois presidential election was held in a feeling of uncertainty and confusion in late December 1995.

Nominations

The PQ incumbent (former Quebec premier), Jacques Parizeau received the nationalist party's nomination. The anti-independence Liberals of Quebec nominated their leader, Daniel Johnson.

Campaign

Daniel Johnson tried to capitalize on the drawbacks of Quebecois independence and announced at numerous times he would consider re-joining Canada. Parizeau claimed Johnson was running a "campaign for Canada" and said numerous times that Quebec would enjoy a privileged economic and political relation with Canada.

Election

Parizeau defeated Johnson with a large majority. The election also saw a strong showing for an English-Canadian party led by Keith Henderson, Equality.
