MONTREAL — The Parti Quebecois leadership race is down to three candidates after the withdrawal of Pierre Cere.

In a news conference on Sunday, Cere said he would vote for Martine Ouellet in the leadership vote this week.

On Friday, Cere told The Canadian Press he had not raised the $10,000 he needed to continue in the race.

Party members begin voting Wednesday to select a new leader.

Cere’s withdrawal means only three candidates remain: Ouellet, Alexandre Cloutier and the front-running Pierre Karl Peladeau.

Results of the first round of the PQ leadership vote will be announced May 15.
