On Tuesday, April 18, the Prime Minister of great Britain Theresa may issued an emergency message and told his fellow citizens about the holding of early General elections, which will take place on 8 June.
This statement was made immediately after the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers at Downing street, writes the newspaper The Telegraph.
The Prime Minister explained this move by saying that during the period of withdrawal from the EU the country needs a strong, confident and stable leadership. According to Mei, the only way to overcome the «split of Westminster» in a difficult time – early elections which guarantee «certainty and security for years to come».
The Prime Minister also accused the British politicians of other parties that are allegedly «prone to play the political game»: the labour party threaten to frustrate the Brexit, the representatives of the liberal democratic party of seeking to «sabotage the work of the government», the Scottish national party (SNP) voted against the negotiations with the EU, and some members of the house of lords «put a spoke in the wheel at every stage».
«If we do not hold General elections now, the political game will continue and the negotiations with the European Union will face difficulties until the next General election. The time has come to show that you support the government and not treat politics as a game,» said Theresa may.
19 April the House of Commons will vote for the proposal to hold early General elections.
