All three front-runners in Monday's provincial election protested a decision by Elections Canada to allow Muslim women to cover their faces while they vote.
Liberal Leader Jean Charest requested on Thursday to have the decision reversed that would allow Muslim women to wear their niqab or burqa while casting their ballots.
"I expect the chief electoral officer to assume his responsibilities and make sure that people are properly identified,'' Charest said on Thursday.
Parti Quebecois Leader Andre Boisclair and Action democratique du Quebec Leader Mario Dumont agreed with Charest on the issue.
Boisclair said Elections Quebec has taken the hot-button topic of reasonable accommodation too far.
"I don't see why there are double standards,'' Boisclair said while campaigning.
"They have to identify themselves to have their photo taken on their driver's license or on their health insurance card; it should be the same thing for voting."
Elections Canada said Muslim women will be allowed to wear the niqab, which leaves only a woman's eyes visible, if they sign a sworn statement attesting to their identity, show two pieces of identification and are accompanied by someone who can vouch for their identity.
Election officials said reasonable accommodation is not the issue in this case.
"We are not making any reasonable accommodation. We're just applying the electoral law as it is," Nicole Paquette, a spokesperson from Elections Canada, told CTV Montreal.
