UK MPs back plans for 8 June poll

UK MPs back plans for 8 June poll

British Prime Minister Theresa May has called for an early election.

The majority of 509 votes gives UK Prime Minister Theresa May her two-thirds majority, which is required to call an election under the Fixed Term Parliament Act.

After debating the motion put forward by May in the House of Commons, 522 of the 650 sitting MPs voted in favour of the June 8 election, passing the threshold of two-thirds needed to approve the plan.

She said she was confident of reaching a deal in that time frame.

She said: "It's great to be here in Bolton, fresh from the House of Commons, fresh from winning a vote in the House of Commons, which has approved my decision to hold a general election on 8 June".

Ms Miller, who is an investment manager at SCM Direct, is trying to raise £10,000 through the "Best for Britain" campaign to get United Kingdom citizens to vote against an "extreme Brexit".

Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer said Wednesday: "We have an interest.in predictability and reliability, because we want to get this process done in the prescribed period of time and above all because we don't need upheaval in this negotiating process - either at the beginning or the end".

Then he added, "I'm not getting ahead of myself". "I've definitely had some good breaks throughout three rounds", Garcia said. The Spieth-Fowler pair will be one of the most closely watched twosomes on a Sunday at a major championship in recent times.

The Labour Party had already indicated that it would back May while the Scottish National Party had said its lawmakers were going to abstain.

For May, the timing could be auspicious, as the opposition Labour Party is struggling with internal dissent.

Facing criticism from within his own party over his leadership style, Mr Corbyn will on Thursday seek to make a virtue out of his refusal to conform to political norms.

In contrast, nearly all the MPs in May's Conservatives party (325 out of 330) voted for the early election.

"She expects a coronation and not a contest", Farron said, urging voters to back his strongly pro-EU party to stop a Conservative landslide.

In the event of a hung parliament with many MPs opposed to a hard Brexit, or indeed any Brexit at all, the government may find itself forced to radically change its policy - it is also possible, but at this point unlikely, that they will find themselves on the opposition benches when 9th June dawns.

Appearing on Channel 4 News, Snow asked about the prospect the General Election presented the opportunity to deliver a U-turn on last year's European Union referendum.

Happy Easter! Know why it is called the Resurrection Sunday
Samson Ayokunle has assured Nigerians that the power of resurrection will end the menace of corruption and recession. In other words, Easter Sunday is tied to the transitions of nature, so that the date moves from year to year.

But Mr Corbyn dismissed her argument that she needs a fresh mandate to deliver Brexit, and said it was "extremely interesting" that she had chosen to call an election as the Crown Prosecution Service prepares to decide whether to press charges against a string of Tory MPs over allegations relating to 2015 general election expenses.

Elections are now set for 2020, just a year after the scheduled completion of Brexit talks.

Tusk will chair a summit of the other 27 European Union national leaders in Brussels on April 29, where he expects them to agree negotiating guidelines he has proposed.

May earlier ruled out participating in televised debates with other leaders. TV debates don't have a long history in British politics, but were a feature of the last two elections, in 2010 and 2015.

Eloise Todd, director of the Best for Britain campaign, said the movement will support different parties and organisations, adding: "We are not party political".

"May's move isn't risk free", Silver wrote shortly after British Prime Minister Theresa May's Tuesday announcement.
