UK PM Again Insists On December Polls Despite MP Rejection

UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is to try again for a 12 december general election on today – despite MPs rejecting his plan.

The Prime Minister will publish a bill that would only need a simple majority to succeed – not two thirds as required in previous attempts.

 

The LIB DEMS and SNP want monday, 9 december, which they say will prevent any chance of the Prime Minister’s brexit deal being approved before parliament is dissolved.

The commons backed the government’s election motion by 299 to 70 – well short of the two-thirds majority needed under the fixed-term parliaments act.

The vote came after the PM officially accepted the EU’S offer of an extension to the brexit process to 31 january.
