United Kingdom Will Hold an Early Election in June

20 Avril 2017

Germany's foreign minister has said he hopes that the election will lead to more clarity and predictability in the Brexit negotiations.

Britain's next election had been scheduled for May 2020, but a two-thirds majority vote in parliament could overrule that in Wednesday's vote, which British media reported could come at around 1300 GMT after an hour and a half of debate.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said that broadcasters should hold debates anyway, with an empty chair in May's place.

If current opinion polling is replicated at the ballot box, the Tories will win 375 seats - nearly double the 189 the Labour Party would win. "That is what this is about", she said.

However, Mrs May's aides made clear that she is not against taking part in a "long-form television programme" when she answers questions in front of a live studio audience.

"Why are so many people getting poorer?" We can't win, they say, because we don't play their game. "Labour's self-inflicted weakness has presented the excuse".

They voted by 522 to 13 in favor of the government's motion to call an election after a debate in the House of Commons - a majority of 509.

"Yesterday she changed her mind, not for the good of the country, but for reasons of simple party advantage", Nicola Sturgeon, leader of the Scottish National Party, told supporters at a rally.

"We need a general election and we need one now".

In a speech in London, Mr Corbyn will say: "Much of the media and Establishment are saying this election is a foregone conclusion".

Schinas also said two British-based EU institutions, the European Banking Authority and European Medicines Agency (EMA), "must be based in the territory of the European Union" once Brexit is complete.

However, the unexpected elections might delay the beginning of the talks, which European Union officials said could begin as early as May.

Parliament will be dissolved on May 2. Inside Parliament, opposition members of the House accused the Prime Minister of political opportunism.

He added: 'The General Election on 8 June will provide a clear choice between strong and stable leadership with Theresa May as Prime Minister or a weak and unstable coalition government led by Jeremy Corbyn.

Ms Dugdale said the election was about who governs the United Kingdom.

The Labour leader pointed to what he said was the Conservative record of broken manifesto pledges since coming to power in 2015. "We look forward to showing how Labour will stand up for the people of Britain".

This time around, the government is in the curious position of defending Brexit to the people of the UK.

In a shock announcement, Theresa May says that she will ask the House of Commons on Wednesday to back her election call.

Some high profile MPs will be standing down at the election.

Labour's former, Home Secretary, Alan Johnson announced he would not be seeking re-election.

"The forthcoming election will be an opportunity for unionists to unite around a strong Democratic Unionist Party that will advocate for them in Parliament". He has been an MP since 1970.
