Early Election Decision From England
UK Parliament approves demand for early general elections on December 12th. England,where is shaken by the Brexit process, are going to early elections.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s motion, calling for early general elections on December 12th, was approved by the British Parliament by 20 to 438 votes. Two-thirds of the deputies (434) needed support for early elections. The bill will be enacted with the approval of the House of Lords and Queen Elizabeth II.
The legislative year of the House of Commons in England, which was decided to early elections, will end in the middle of next week and the candidates for parliament will start their campaigns in the election districts. However, some opposition parties are worried that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will attempt to enact the agreement he reached with the EU the week before parliament closes. In such a case, the country may leave the EU before the election.
The agreement was approved at the first vote in parliament, but Johnson had suspended the legislative process of the agreement upon rejection of the government motion, which envisions the completion of the entire approval process in three days.
The main opposition Workers’ Party pulled the election date to December 9th, attempting to close parliament this week, thus taking this opportunity from Johnson. However, Labor’s proposal for a change in this direction was rejected in parliament this evening.
According to the latest surveys in the country, the Conservative Party will receive 37 percent, the Labor Party 22 percent, the Liberal Democratic Party 19 percent, the Brexit Party 11 percent, the Green Party 7 percent and the Scottish National Party 4 percent of the vote.
