Former Progressive Conservative cabinet minister and Liberal premier of Quebec Jean Charest will not run for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada.

"I will not be a candidate. It is final," he told Radio-Canada's Patrice Roy in an interview that will be broadcast at 5 p.m. ET tonight on ICI RDI.

Before Christmas, Charest told RDI that he was thinking of entering the race to succeed Andrew Scheer, who resigned as leader in December after failing to win the October federal election.
