Merkel's German conservatives set sights on absolute majority| Reuters

BERLIN German Chancellor Angela Merkel faced pressure from conservative allies on Sunday to run for a fourth term in 2017 after an opinion poll showed they could win an absolute majority if an election were held next week. The results of the poll came a day after Der Spiegel news magazine said in an unsourced report that Merkel, who turned 61 on July 17, had decided to run for a fourth term and had started planning her 2017 re-election campaign #Economy #Technology #Europe #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment

Canada PM calls Oct 19 election, focus on sluggish economy| Reuters

OTTAWA Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Sunday called a parliamentary election for Oct 19, kicking off a marathon 11-week campaign likely to focus on a stubbornly sluggish economy and his decade in power. Polls indicate that Harper's right-of-center Conservative Party, which has been in office since 2006, could well lose its majority in the House of Commons. That would leave Harper at the mercy of the two main center-left opposition parties, who could unite to bring him down. #Business #Economy #United States #Technology #Middle East #markets

Malaysia says Indian Ocean airplane debris is part of a Boeing 777| Reuters

KUALA LUMPUR/PARIS Malaysia said on Sunday that airplane debris that washed up on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion has been identified as being from a Boeing 777, the same model as a Malaysian Airlines plane which vanished last year. Experts hope the 2-2.5 metre (6.5-8 feet) wing surface, known as a flaperon, and a fragment of luggage also found on Reunion could yield clues on the fate of Flight MH370, which disappeared without trace in March 2014 with 239 passengers and crew on board. #Business #Economy #India #Europe #Africa #Latin America
