QUEBEC _ Coalition Avenir Quebec Leader Francois Legault is set to be sworn in as premier today and unveil what is expected to be a gender-balanced cabinet.

An announcement is scheduled for 2 p.m., followed by a speech.

Legault has said he will form a small cabinet of between 20 and 25 ministers that will include a mix of newcomers and veterans, ensure regional representation and be composed equally of women and men.

Legault’s party swept to victory in the Oct. 1 provincial election, winning 74 of the legislature’s 125 seats.

The victory ushered in a new political era, ending nearly 50 years of Liberal and Parti Quebecois rule.

Forty-six men and 28 women were elected under the Coalition banner.
