One application for a recount of votes: La Pointe-aux-Prairies district

The returning officer for Montréal has announced that only one application for a recount was submitted to the Court of Québec by the legally prescribed deadline. Lisa Christensen (Projet Montréal - Équipe Valérie Plante), who obtained the largest number of votes for the position of borough councillor in the La Pointe-aux-Prairies electoral district (Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles borough) cannot be sworn in on Thursday, since she cannot be declared elected until the results have been certified by a judge, as required by law.
