Quebec Premier says has not decided on election
OTTAWA (Reuters) - The premier of the predominantly French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec said on Monday he had not decided whether to hold an election in the near future.
Media reports earlier in the day said that Jean Charest -- whose Liberals oppose separatists seeking independence for the province -- would call an election for Dec 8.
Charest told a televised news conference in Mirabel, Quebec, that the leaders of the two opposition parties in the provincial legislature clearly did not want to co-operate with his minority government.
