New York: Canadian voters have handed Justin Trudeau a second term as prime minister, though his centre-left Liberal Party is expected to go into minority government.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation declared just after 10pm on Monday (Tuesday AEDT) that the Liberals would retain power.

Trudeau's victory came despite a drop in popularity since his landslide triumph in 2015 and the emergence of several photos during the election campaign of him posing in "brown face" as a young man.

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer was unable to generate enough enthusiasm among voters to win the seats required to form government.

Preferred prime minister closest since the election

  Preferred prime minister closest since the election The Coalition has maintained its lead over Labor despite pressure over the economy and drought relief for farmers. The latest Newspoll showed the Coalition held onto its two-party preferred lead of 51 per cent to 49 per cent - the fourth consecutive poll with a two-point margin between the major parties. Scott Morrison remained the preferred Prime Minister with an approval rating of 47 per cent, and support for Opposition leader Anthony Albanese in the top job has lifted to 32 per cent. The gap between the two leaders as preferred prime minister is now the closest since the election.

Initial results have put Prime Minister Justin Trudeau 's Liberals on track to form a minority government, coming in narrowly ahead of the Conservatives. Although Trudeau won by a landslide in 2015, his fight to secure a second term has been hobbled by several scandals.

The Conservatives' pledge to repeal the country's carbon tax failed to resonate with voters in the electorally-important suburbs of Ontario and Quebec.

The polls in the final days of the campaign, suggesting a narrow victory for the Liberals, turned out to be accurate.

The Bloc Québécois, a party devoted to Quebec nationalism, picked up a substantial number of seats in that province, denying the Liberal Party the seats required to form government in its own right.

The Liberals are forecast to win 161 seats, down from 184 in the past election and just short of the 170 needed to win a majority.

The Conservatives are expected to win 116 seats, the Bloc Québécois 34 seats and the left-wing New Democrats 24 seats.

The Green Party won three seats.

Once the golden boy of progressives, Trudeau’s star power is waning as Canada heads to polls

  Once the golden boy of progressives, Trudeau’s star power is waning as Canada heads to polls Once Canada’s poster-boy for progressive values, Justin Trudeau swept to power in 2015 on the promise of change and a new way of doing politics. But now he’s battling for political survival as Canadians prepare to vote in a general election on Monday. Canada’s tightly contested race is largely being seen as a referendum on Trudeau’s leadership. He and his Liberal Party are neck-and-neck with their main rival, with the Conservative Party led by Andrew Scheer having steadily made strides in a campaign Trudeau has described as one of the “nastiest” in Canadian history.  And if the polls have it right, he has suffered a fall from grace from which he is unlikely to recover.
