Québec Solidaire elects interim co-spokesman

Québec Solidaire has elected André Frappier as its interim co-spokesperson.

The retired mail carrier from Ahuntsic has been a candidate for the party in the Crémazie riding for the past three provincial elections.

Québec Solidaire's policy is to have two spokespeople — one male and one female.

Frappier is replacing Amir Khadir, who stepped down from his role as parliamentary spokesperson last month.

Frappier will serve as co-spokesperson until party delegates elect an official successor in May 2013. The successor will then serve for a two-year term.

Frappier has been active in various labour unions over the past 30 years, including the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) and the Greater Montreal FTQ Regional Council.
