The Bloc won 10 seats in the election, six more than it did in 2011, but it captured less than 20 per cent of the popular vote.

Duceppe, 68, lost his own Montreal seat for the second consecutive election.

He stepped down as leader after the 2011 vote but returned this past summer to succeed Mario Beaulieu.
