The party was among several prevented from running candidates who wore hijabs by a Chief Electoral Officer of Quebec requirement to submit an official photo of each candidate with an uncovered head.[5] In 2016, it ran Shirley Cedent and Eric Emond for deputy of Marie-Victorin and Saint-Jérôme respectively; they received 0.25% and 0.2% of the vote.[6]
