Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has called general elections for Oct. 19, kicking off the country's longest election campaign in recent history.

 

The 56-year-old Conservative leader said on Sunday he had asked Canadian governor general David Johnson, the representative of Queen Elizabeth II, to dissolve parliament, according to BBC.

Harper's Sunday announcement marks the official beginning of an eleven-week election campaign. Five of country's last six parliamentary election campaigns have lasted the minimum length of just over five weeks, according to The Guardian.
