Canada election: Justin Trudeau set to remain in power - but with minority government

Justin Trudeau is set to win a second term in Canada"s parliamentary elections despite a series of scandals, but will have to form a minority government.

Trudeau"s Liberal party was set to win the most seats in Parliament, giving it the best chance to form the next government.

However, according to partial results, his Liberal party had won 156 out of 338 seats - short of the 170 seats needed for a second straight majority government. The Conservatives were set to win 122. That means the Liberals will have to form a minority government, relying on a smaller party to stay in power.
