Former Conservative PM Stephen Harper has endorsed Pierre Poilievre for party leadership

Former Conservative PM Stephen Harper has endorsed Pierre Poilievre for party leader.

Key Takeaways:

  • With the help of a little video he tweeted on Monday, Harper made a rare public return to party politics.
  • Poilievre has drawn criticism for having ideas and a demeanour that would make it impossible for the Conservatives, who have now suffered three defeats, to win the next general election.

Stephen Harper, a former Conservative prime minister, has given Pierre Poilievre his support as the party’s next leader.

Harper, who stayed out of the Conservative Party’s 2017 and 2020 leadership contests, made a rare public comeback to party politics on Monday by tweeting a brief video outlining his support.

Harper claims that while many are running for party leader, one sticks out.

Before being ousted by Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in 2015, the former prime minister claims Poilievre functioned as a strong minister under him when the Conservatives were last in office.

Poilievre has championed economic problems like inflation and debt, which has made him our party’s most loud and effective critic of the Trudeau Liberals, according to Harper.

He is putting out solutions based on sensible Conservative principles that have been updated for the times.

With fewer than 2 months left in the campaign and as party members complete their mail-in ballots, Harper has announced his support.

The fight for Harper’s old party’s soul has been described as a leadership campaign, and there have been several instances of personal attacks between contenders.

Poilievre has come under fire for having ideas and a tone that would prevent the Conservatives from winning the next general election following three losses, including former Quebec premier Jean Charest, a candidate for the leadership.

Harper stated the opposite in his endorsement video.

The former prime minister claims that Poilievre not only has the most support among the party’s caucus of any candidate running but is also enticing a lot of recruits.

According to Harper, “that’s how we win the next federal election.”

In my perspective, Pierre has presented the clearest evidence of why he should carry out that task.

Following Harper’s video, Charest said that supporting Poilievre was a “personal choice.”

“Only by working together will conservatives succeed. The Canadian Conservative Party has been successfully brought together under Stephen Harper. As the CPC’s leader, I pledge to follow suit. “In his statement, Charest added.

This election is about the future, and we currently have two options: continue to gain ground across Canada or lose more seats.
