Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau has received numerous congratulations from politicians, activists, and ordinary Twitterians after the preliminary results of parliamentary elections were issued in the North American country.
The US president congratulated him, despite previous tensions between the two politicians.
Congratulations to @JustinTrudeau on a wonderful and hard fought victory. Canada is well served. I look forward to working with you toward the betterment of both of our countries!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2019
Leader of the New Democratic Party Jagmeet Singh also wrote a tweet on the issue, stating he had had a conversation with the PM.
Thank you, Canada 🇨🇦— Jagmeet Singh (@theJagmeetSingh) October 22, 2019
What a night – and what an unforgettable journey this campaign has been.
With our new NDP caucus in Ottawa, I'm incredibly excited to continue our critical work to achieve the priorities that we’ve heard from people across this country. #elxn43 #ElectionDay
According to preliminary results, during the elections on 21 October, the Liberal Party of Canada won in 156 out of 338 districts, failing to form a majority, but apparently securing enough seats in Parliament to keep Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in power for another 4-year term.
