March 25 (Bloomberg) -- Quebec’s Liberal Party has increased its lead over the separatist Parti Quebecois and may be on track to form a majority government in the April 7 election, TVA television network reported.

Forty percent of respondents in a new Leger poll would have voted for the opposition Liberals, compared with 33 percent for the Parti Quebecois and 15 percent for the Coalition Avenir Quebec, had an election been held earlier this month, TVA said.

That result probably would be enough for the Liberals to form a majority government, TVA cited Leger President Jean-Marc Leger as saying. The Liberals had 35 percent support when the election was called on March 5, TVA said.

Leger polled 3,692 Quebec residents via the Internet from March 21 to 23. Results are considered to be accurate to within 1.9 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
