(ANSA) - WASHINGTON, 20 SEPTEMBER - The third mandate for Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is at stake in the anticipated legislative elections underway in Canada. The first polling stations opened at 8:30 local time in the eastern province of Newfoundland and Labrador, the last ones will close at 19 (4am in Italy) in the western province of British Columbia, in a country that has six time zones.
But it seems unlikely that Canadians will know the results anytime soon, as polls give a heads up between outgoing government chief and Conservative party leader Erin O'Toole (both around 32%).
Also this time to tip the balance could be Jagmeet Singh, the popular and charismatic Sikh leader of the New Democratic Party, who supported Trudeau in the outgoing government. (HANDLE).
