OTTAWA (Reuters) - Prime Minister Stephen Harper must face a vote of confidence before seeking to suspend Parliament, the leader of the official opposition Liberals said on Wednesday.
"If Mr. Harper wants to suspend Parliament, he must first face a vote of confidence," Stephane Dion said in a televised address.
Harper is widely expected to seek the temporary suspension of Parliament at least until January as he combats opposition efforts to replace his minority Conservative government with a coalition of their own.
