QUEBEC - Quebec's premier-designate is promising integrity and transparency after an acrimonious election campaign that featured mudslinging galore.

Philippe Couillard says the fact his Liberals formed a majority government on Monday night will not mean they will be arrogant.

Couillard told a news conference in Quebec City this afternoon he will not compromise when it comes to integrity.

The Liberals won 70 out of 125 seats in the election, outstripping the Parti Quebecois's 30, the Coalition party's 22 and Quebec solidaire's three.

Couillard says former Liberal premier Daniel Johnson will oversee the transition period as he takes over from the PQ's Pauline Marois.

After losing the election and her own seat, Marois announced Monday night she was quitting politics.
