Pauline Marois said that a new PQ government's first priority will be to re-introduce her dying with dignity bill.
She says the new bill will be largely the same as the previous one - including the provision for euthanasia.
The original bill was based on two years of consultations and 24 recommendations made in a report by a non-partisan commitee.
The groundwork for the bill was first laid down in 2009. It almost passed in earlier this year but was scuppered by the election call.
PQ Minister for Social Services Veronique Hivon, who is responsible for the bill and joined Marois at a press conference Sunday afternoon, said she hopes the Liberal party continues to support the bill as they did before the election was called.
"We want to be reassured that they will also make this issue a priority and make sure we can adopt it," she said.
