May Calls For Snap Election in June

After a short "wash-up" period to clear up outstanding legislation, Parliament will be dissolved on Wednesday May 3, allowing 25 working days before voters go to the polling booths on June 8.

Mrs May said: "We need a general election and we need it now".

"They are wrong", she said. Previously, the next election was supposed to be held in May 2020.

Nine months later, May is looking a lot stronger as she announced today that she's planning to hold a snap parliamentary election on June 8. She said the political divisions "risk our ability to make a success of Brexit".

An early United Kingdom election would reconfigure the calendar and eliminate much of the Brussels edge.

Before she was designated the new Prime-Minister of Great Britain, during her 30 June speech, Theresa May declared that during her term "snap elections" will never take place.

May's office says she will speak at 11:15 a.m. (1015GMT) Tuesday, after the weekly meeting of her Cabinet.

Is a General Election an absolute certainty?

Tom Brake claimed the PM's announcement on Tuesday was a result of realising the Government's European Union exit plan was flawed rather than Mrs May's attempt to silence bitter Remainers trying to halt Brexit.
