The 40th Quebec general election will be held in the Canadian province of Quebec, after the National Assembly is dissolved.

In accordance with Section Four of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, no assembly may continue for longer than five years from the return of the writs, which would have been in the days following the December 8, 2008, election, making an election probable for 2013.[1] Upon the expiration of the National Assembly in December 2013, the Lieutenant Governor is not required to call an election, but Section Five of the 1982 charter requires an assembly to sit once every twelve months. In practice, a failure to call an election is not likely.
