Canadians Vote at Parliamentary Elections

Canada has a parliamentary system, meaning that the leader of the party with the most votes will be tasked with shaping a new government.

Press TV asked some of the voters which issues were most important to them.

The Conservative Party has been in power since 2006, however with the NDP campaign gaining fast momentum in the past week, the question that Canadians will answer today is whether they want to keep the government or replace it with a new one.

According to the latest surveys by Nanos Research, support for the Conservative Party has declined while the left leaning New Democratic Party has gained ground.

Under the electoral law, parties need around 40% of the votes to win a majority, this has made a minority government a more likely scenario.

Preliminary election results are expected on Tuesday.
