Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has retained his seat after being re-elected, despite losing majority seats in parliament.

The Monday night election results showed that Trudeau’s Liberal Party was yet to win 157 of the 338 parliamentary seats, only 13 short of a majority.

The opposition Conservative Party is projected to win 121 seats, up from 95 seats the won in the 2015 election.

The country’s New Democratic Party (NDP) headed by Jagmeet Singh won 24 seats.

Quebec’s separatist party, the Bloc Quebecois, took 32 seats, up from 10 it won in the last poll.

While thanking his supporters in Montreal, Mr. Trudeau said: “Thank you for having faith in us to move our country in the right direction.”

He added that the voters “had “rejected division and negativity… and they rejected cuts and austerity and voted in favor of a progressive agenda and strong action on climate change”.

Mr. Trudeau’s popularity has been slightly declining. He was criticized for failing to fulfill his 2015 campaign promises.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
