Former student leader Martine Desjardins has announced on Facebook that she is temporarily withdrawing from her work as a political commentator while she considers and offer to run in the next election under the Parti Quebecois banner.
She says she has been approached to run for the party, and is currently reflecting on the idea.
Last month, she declared she was a sovereignist and wanted to go into politics, but later said that no party had approached her to run.
Desjardins has been rumoured to be moonlighting with the PQ for some time.
She has defended several of the Marois governments' measures, including the charter of secularism.
Political scientists Pierre Martin says parties will normally keep star candidates a secret until the official announcement.
"When the election starts, when real decisions are made public, that is when we can expect to actually see what is going on."
One of Desjardins' fellow leaders during the student crisis, Léo Bureau-Blouin, is already a PQ MNA.
A report that Pierre Karl Peladeau will run for the PQ in Saint-Jérome has also re-surfaced.
The premier's office says that that story is false.
