OTTAWA—As criticism of the Conservatives' electoral reform bill continues to mount, Democratic Reform Minister Pierre Poilievre launched an attack on Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand.

Poilievre said Tuesday that Mayrand, the independent head of Elections Canada appointed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, is criticizing the so-called Fair Elections Act out of a desire for more power.

"The reality is that regardless of amendments and improvements that the bill potentially will have included, the CEO will not ultimately approve it," Poilievre said.
