Trudeu's liberals have been imposed in the elections with 157 seats, 27 less than in the previous elections, followed by the Conservative Party, which has been made with 121 parliamentarians, the Quebeques Block, which adds 32, the New Democratic Party, which It achieves 24 representatives, and the Greens, who remain with three deputies in the Lower House of the Canadian Parliament, according to the results with 99.67 percent of the vote scrutinized.

Despite its victory in seats, Trudeau's party suffers a significant setback and has lost in the popular vote, adding 5.9 million votes, representing 33.1 percent of the total, compared to 6.1 millions of votes that conservatives treasure, representing 34.4 percent of the vote.

The electoral system in force in Canada has benefited the Liberal Party which, despite losing in the popular vote, is made with 46.4 percent of the seats of the House of Representatives, while the Conservative Party keeps 35 , 8 percent of parliamentarians.

The formations that have lost more seats in these legislative elections are the Liberals led by Trudeau, who lose 27 seats, and the New Democratic Party, which has left 18 parliamentarians.

The conservatives, with a rise of 23 deputies, and the Québec Block, with 22 seats, are the two forces that rise most in parliamentary representation after the appointment with the polls this Monday, according to the Canadian television network CBC. The rise of the Québec Block is especially significant when it goes from ten to 32 seats in the Ottawa Parliament.

The Liberals led by Trudeau have lost seats and votes but have managed to maintain positions in key territories in order to remain at the head of the Government, although they must obtain the support of another formation for the Prime Minister to be re-elected by the House of Representatives.

The Québec Block and the Conservative Party are the forces that have improved their electoral results the most, but the 'tories' are forced to stay in the opposition and are far from their goal of beating Trudeau. Despite its decline in seats, the New Democratic Party could play a key role with its 24 deputies for Trudeau to repeat as head of the Government.

By provinces, despite losing support, the Liberal Party of Trudeau has managed to remain as the first force in votes and seats in the Ontario region, with 79 deputies, compared to 36 that have added the 'tories'.

In Quebec, the liberals have managed to hold the square with a victory in ballots and seats, with a total of 35 deputies against the 32 that has added the Quebeques Block, which has won 22 seats more than in the previous appointment with the polls .

With these results, Trudeau prevails again in an appointment with the polls but does so with a much more modest balance in votes and seats than his first electoral victory in 2015, when he swept 184 deputies in the Ottawa House of Representatives.
