Charest's campaign focused on health care. He promised to cut government subsidies, tax credits to big businesses and trim the civil service.
Charest also predicted Parti Quebecois leader Premier Bernard Landry would call another sovereignty referendum of elected.
The Liberals defeated the ruling Parti Quebecois and Landry; and Mario Dumont's upstart Action Démocratique du Québec.
Prime Minister Jean Chrétien expressed his satisfaction with the results, reading the results to guests at a state dinner in the Dominican Republic. The prime minister is there on an official visit.
"Between Mike Weir and Quebec we have two good things," said Chrétien.
