MONTREAL - The Bloc Quebecois will select a new leader in May.

The sovereigntist party must find a replacement Daniel Paille, who stepped down last month for health reasons.

The Bloc is looking to bounce back after a poor showing in the 2011 election and now has only four MPs in Ottawa.

The party says it will choose its new chief at a convention from May 23 to 25 in Rimouski, Que.

Details of the leadership race will be determined at a party meeting on Feb. 22.

So far, two Bloc MPs, Andre Bellavance et Jean-Francois Fortin, have shown interest in the post.

Organizations: Bloc Quebecois

Geographic location: MONTREAL, Ottawa, Rimouski, Que
