Justin Trudeau has won as prime minister of Canada for the third term, reported BBC on Tuesday.

The 44th general election of Canada was held on Monday. In order to form a Cabinet, 180 out of 338 federal seats have to be secured.

According to the latest results, the Liberal Party has won 158 seats where The Conservatives won 122 seats.

The Trudeau government has come under ‘extreme critics’ over tackling the COVID pandemic with huge debts and economic woes. 

Under the circumstances, Trudeau, 49, announced early elections for a “single majority” in the parliament. 

However, Trudeau’s team, which allied with a smaller team in 2019, did not see success this time around, as a result, he will have to ally with a small opposition party again to form a government. 

Although Justin Trudeau has secured the third federal win, his critics say the polls was a “waste of time”.

“There are still votes to be counted but what we’ve seen tonight is millions of Canadians have chosen a progressive plan,” Trudeau told supporters in Montreal in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

“You elected a government that will fight for you and deliver for you,” he added.
