Germany's Merkel rejects prospect of confidence vote

Accra, Sept. 26 - (DPA/GNA) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel sees no need to hold a vote of confidence on her leadership in parliament, her spokesman Steffen Seibert said Wednesday in Berlin.

Calls for the vote from the opposition were provoked by the ousting of a long-time Merkel ally, Volker Kauder, from his job as head of her conservative bloc in German parliament, the Bundestag.

Kauder's defeat prompted renewed speculation over Merkel's hold on power.
