The second Quebecois presidential election was held on February 7, 1999. Incumbent PQ President Jacques Parizeau declined to run for a second term and stepped down as PQ leader.


The PQ held a snap leadership election in November 1998 that led Prime Minister Bernard Landry to the PQ nomination. The Liberals nominated their new leader Jean Charest, while Mario Dumont ran for a second time as the UDQ candidate.


Charest launched numerous attacks on the PQ and President Parizeau's poor presidency.


The PQ suffered its largest electoral defeat and suffered a huge blow in the second round 59-40.
