    Theresa May to call snap general election on 8 June

    Publications

    Theresa May today announced her plan to call a general election on 8 June 2017, stating it is in the “national interest” and “the only way to guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead” in the wake of Brexit.

    Since the UK voted to leave the EU in June last year, Downing Street has always denied a vote would be held before the next scheduled election in 2020 and the Prime Minister has maintained that she would not be calling a snap election. Mrs May has now announced that she came “reluctantly” to the conclusion that a vote is necessary.

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has welcomed the decision.
