London, April 18 : In a sudden and shocking announcement made at her official residence, 10, Downing Street, London, United Kingdom Prime Minister, Theresa May has announced her intent of conducting early general elections on June 8, 2017 to ensure strong and stable government and leadership that will see the country through the turmoil of Brexit. PM May will be moving a resolution tomorrow in the Westminster seeking 2/3rd majority to declare the early elections.
While speaking at the unscheduled announcement at official residence of the Prime Minister, PM May said that having chaired a meeting of the cabinet, “we have agreed that the government should call a general election to be held on the 8th of June.”
“It is with reluctance that I decided the country needs this election,” she said. “But it is with conviction that I say it is necessary to secure the strong and stable leadership the country needs to see us through Brexit, and beyond,” giving a strong and clear message across the opposition.
PM May, while negotiating the excruciating Brexit talks with the European Union, has been struggling over the past few months to keep her ship intact, facing dire opposition from the Labor Party, Liberal Democrats, as well as the Scottish National Party, along with the ever looming threat of a Scottish Independence referendum. “The country is coming together, but the Westminster is not,” she said while making the announcement.
May explained that division in Westminster is posing as a hindrance to the government’s deliverance of Brexit referendum. PM May attacked the opponents, “The Labor Party (UK) (a centre-left political wing of UK) has threatened to vote against the government’s final agreement with the EU, while the Liberal Democrats wish to grind our business with EU to a standstill, and the Scottish National Party has claimed of voting against the legislation that will formally repeal Britain’s membership of the EU.”
Giving a clear message to the opposition, May said that, “Britain is leaving the European Union, and there can be no turning back,” and justified it as the “right approach, and in the national interest.” Thus, to crack down on the opposition’s intent to “weaken the government’s resolution,”
PM May will be moving a resolution in the Westminster tomorrow seeking early general elections, justifying it as to prevent the stalling and deterioration in the status of Brexit talks with EU by the opposition.
