    Update News - Theresa May U.K. Prime Minister Calls For Early Election

    British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she is calling for an early election on June 8, describing it as the only way to guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead as the U.K. prepares to leave the European Union.

    The decision was immediately welcomed by the head of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn. He called it a chance to vote for a government that will put the interests of the majority first.

    Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who opposes Brexit, said May's Conservative Party is trying to move the UK to the right, force through a hard Brexit and impose deeper cut.

    May made the surprise announcement in televised remarks in front of 10 Downing Street. In order to hold a vote ahead of the next scheduled vote in 2020, she will need the backing of Parliament, the BBC reports.

    The Conservative party currently holds a small majority in the House of Commons, with 330 of its 650 seats.

    At this moment of enormous national significance, there should be unity here in Westminster, the Conservative leader said. But instead, there is division, May added, accusing other political parties of putting up obstacles.

    What they are doing jeopardizes the work we must do to prepare for Brexit at home, and it weakens the government's negotiating position in Europe, May added. If we do not hold a general election now, their political game-playing will continue, and the negotiations with the European Union will reach their most difficult stage in the run-up to the next scheduled election.



    She emphasized the urgency to hold an election. [W]e have at this moment a one-off chance to get this done, while the European Union agrees its negotiating position and before the detailed talks begin.

    May said she came to this conclusion only recently, and reluctantly. She had previously denied that she was considering any election prior to the next one scheduled.

    Last month, she triggered the process that began the U.K.'s formal departure from the European Union. British voters made the surprise decision to leave the bloc in a referendum last June.

    British prime minister calls for elections. Khabar K Peechy

    10:35

    British Prime Minister Theresa May stunned her nation and its European partners Tuesday with a call for an early national election on June 8, seeking to cement her political backing as Britain moves ahead with difficult negotiations on its break from the European Union.

    The surprise announcement — made outside her office at 10 Downing Street — comes amid internal political strains over Britain’s exit, known as Brexit, and fresh moves by Scotland to potentially carve its own independent path to remain in the European Union.

    On the wider European stage, the election cannot undo Britain’s break from the E.U. But it will help set the tone for Britain’s contentious talks to split from the bloc, whose 27 remaining leaders have taken a hard line against any major concessions on key issues such as trade.

    [Theresa May’s element of surprise]

    If May emerges strengthened from the election — as opinion polls currently suggest — she will have greater clout to mute domestic dissent as she buckles down for talks. But if anti-Brexit voices do well in the polls, May could be forced to soften her demands from Europe.

    No matter how the vote swings, the six-week election campaign is certain to reopen some of the bitterness of last year’s referendum, as voters are once again asked to consider what kind of country they envision after its E.U. break and in generations to come.

    “I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead is to hold this election and seek your support for the decisions I have to make,” said May, who last month submitted Britain’s formal request to begin E.U. exit negotiations.

    From her first day in office, May’s tenure has been shaped by the fallout from Brexit. She became prime minister in July, shortly after the referendum that set in motion Britain’s E.U. split and prompted the resignation of her predecessor, David Cameron.

    [Britain’s snap elections won’t reverse Brexit]

    Part of the election call by May is to seek her own political mandate and shrug off an image as Cameron’s replacement after he bet wrong on the Brexit referendum.


    May has consolidated power within the Conservative Party. But the lack of her own popular mandate has threatened to become a liability as Britain begins to reckon with the inevitable trade-offs that come with the tricky Brexit talks.

    In the election announcement, May argued that her political opponents — ranging from the independence-minded Scots to pro-E. U. factions in Parliament — are undermining Britain’s negotiating position with the European Union. At the same time, some hard-liners in her own Conservative Party are baying for a so-called “dirty Brexit” in which Britain could walk away from the negotiating table without any deals with the European Union.

    “The country is coming together, but Westminster is not,” she said, referring to Parliament.

    It is not clear, however, that the nation is coming together on Brexit — the wounds are still festering, and the election threatens to reopen them.

    Theresa May calls for an early general election on June 8th

    We need a general election...And we need one now British PM Theresa May said on Tuesday (April 18th) as she called for an early #GeneralElection on June 8th.

    ''It is a recent and reluctant decision,'' May said in an urgent statement that followed a routine Cabinet meeting. ''I will move a motion in the parliament tomorrow.''

    Underlining the opposition of the other parties, and their attempts to block the Brexit decision, May complained about lack of unity in parliament.

    ''At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division,'' she said.

    ''The government has a plan for Brexit that will allow the UK to regain control of its laws and borders... This is the right approach.''

    May has opposed the idea of a snap election since she came in the office following the resignation of her predecessor David Cameron.

    UK opposition Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn says he welcomes the decision to call early national elections.

    May Calls for Early U K General Election on June 8

    2:00

    May is seeking to hold a General Election on 8 June arguing it is the only way to secure stability ahead of Brexit.

    The shock move follows speculation the Prime Minister would call a poll to shore up her parliamentary position as Britain leaves the EU and given Labour's dire position in the polls.

    Under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, introduced under the last coalition government, the next election was not due until 2020.
    However, a poll can be called before then if backed by two thirds of MPs or if there is a no confidence vote in the Government.

    Wednesday and has called on MPs to back an election.
    Jeremy Corbyn has previously said Labour was ready to take its case to the country, but many MPs are likely to have private reservations, given the party's poor performance.

    Making the dramatic announcement, following the weekly Cabinet meeting, Mrs May said she had come to the decision reluctantly, but argued other political parties opposed Brexit.

    Speaking in Downing Street she said: At this moment of enormous national significance, they should be unity in Westminster, but instead there is division.

    In recent weeks Labour have threatened to vote against the final agreement we reached with the European Union.


    The Scottish National Party say they will vote against the legislation that formerly repeals Britain's membership of the European Union and unelected members of the House of Lords have vowed to fight us every step of the way.

    She added: They underestimate our determination to get the job done And I am not prepared to let them endanger the security of millions of working people across the country Because what they are doing jeopardises the work we must do to prepare for Brexit at home.

    And it weakens the government's negotiating position in Europe.
    If we do not hold a general election now, their political gameplaying will continue.

    And the negotiations with the European Union will reach their most difficult stage in the run-up to the next scheduled election.

    So we need a general election and we need it now.

    In a stark message to political opponents, Mrs May said: You have criticised the government's vision for Brexit, you have challenged our objectives, you have threatened to block the legislation we put before Parliament.

    This is your moment to show you mean it, to show you are not opposing the government for the sake of it, to show that you do not treat politics as a game.

    So tomorrow vote for an election, let us put forward our plans for Brexit and our alternative programmes for government and then let the people decide.

    The PM said the decision facing the country would be about leadership.

    She said: It will be a choice between strong and stable leadership in the national interest, with me as your Prime Minister, all weak and unstable coalition government led by Jeremy Corbyn, propped up by the Liberal Democrats, who want to reopen the divisions of the referendum, and Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP.

    UK PM calls for general election on 8 June

    2:09

    (18 Apr 2017) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY

    UK POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLY
    London - 18 April 2017
    1. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
    I have just chaired a meeting of the cabinet where we agreed that the government should call a general election to be held on the 8th of June. I want to explain the reasons for that decision. What will happen next and the choice facing the British people when you come to vote in this election. Last summer, after the country voted to leave the European Union, Britain needed certainty, stability and strong leadership and since I became prime minister the government has delivered precisely that. Despite predictions of immediate financial and economic danger, since the referendum we have seen consumer confidence remain high, record numbers of jobs, and economic growth that has exceeded all expectations. We have also delivered on the mandate that we were handed by the referendum results. Britain is leaving the European Union and there can be no turning back. And as we look to the future, the government has the right plan for negotiating our new relationship with Europe, we want a deep and special partnership and between a strong and successful European Union and a United Kingdom that is free but it's free to chart its own way in the world. That means we would regain control of our own money, our own laws, and our own borders, and we will be free to strike trade deals with old friends and new partners all around the world. This is the right approach and it is in the national interest but the other political parties oppose it.
    STORYLINE
    British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will seek early election on June 8.
    May's Conservative Party is way ahead of the main opposition Labour Party in opinion polls.
    A resounding win would bolster her mandate in upcoming talks with the European Union over the country's exit.

    British prime minister calls for elections in June amid Brexit fallout

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    British Prime Minister Theresa May called Tuesday for an early national election on June 8, seeking to cement her political backing as Britain moves ahead with the difficult negotiations on its break from the European Union.

    The surprise announcement — made outside her office at 10 Downing Street — also comes amid internal political strains over Brexit and fresh moves by Scotland to potentially carve its own independent path to remain in the European Union.

    On the wider European stage, the election will help set the tone for Britain’s contentious negotiations to split from the European Union, where the 27 remaining leaders of the bloc have taken a hard line against any major concessions.

    If May emerges strengthened from the elections — as opinion polls currently suggest at the moment — she will have greater clout to muzzle domestic dissent as she buckles down for talks. But if anti-Brexit voices do well in the polls, May could be forced to soften her demands from Europe.

    “I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead is to hold this election and seek your support for the decisions I have to make,” said May, who last month submitted Britain’s formal request to begin E.U. exit negotiations.

    From her first day in office, May’s tenure has been shaped by the fallout from Brexit. She became prime minister in July, shortly after the referendum that set in motion Britain’s E.U. divorce and prompted the resignation of her predecessor, David Cameron.

    [Britain’s snap elections won’t reverse Brexit]

    Part of the election call by May is to seek her own political mandate and shrug off the image as Cameron’s replacement after he bet wrong on the Brexit referendum.

    May has consolidated power within the Conservative party. But the lack of her own popular mandate had threatened to become a liability as Britain begins to reckon with the inevitable trade-offs that come with the tricky Brexit talks.

    Still, May is taking something of a calculated political gambit with elections set for just two weeks before the anniversary of the Brexit referendum.

    [The Brexit road map]

    Polls show that the Conservative party has strong lead over the opposition Labour party of more than 20 points. But the announcement still caught some off guard because Downing Street had repeatedly denied that May would seek an early election. The next one was scheduled for 2020.

    May has repeatedly insisted she would not seek an early election, saying that the country needs to focus its attention on negotiating the terms of Brexit with its soon-to-be-former European partners, not domestic politics.

    But the temptation to call a new vote was strong, and allies had been pushing for her to break her vow.

    May enters the campaign from a position of strength.

    Her Conservative Party has a wide lead over its main rival, the center-left Labour Party, which has been at war with itself since the election of the far-left Jeremy Corbyn as leader in September 2015.

    A recent poll showed that, in a head-to-head matchup between May and Corbyn, not even a majority of Labour votes would want Corbyn as their prime minister.

    Corbyn welcomed the decision as a chance to “give the British people the chance to vote for a government that will put the interests of the majority first.”

    Other parties are similarly weakened. The far-right U.K. Independence Party has lost its charismatic leader, Nigel Farage, and its central message — that Britain needs to get out of the E.U. — has been co-opted by May. The centrist Liberal Democrats were all-but-wiped out in the 2015 election, though they will hope to rally the Brexit referendum’s “remain” voters around their unapologetically pro-European stance.

    May planned to seek Parliament backing on Wednesday for the June 8 elections.

    It is rare for leaders to make statement outside Number 10 Downing Street — it’s usually reserved as the setting for major announcements.

    [In “Brexit capital,” Labour’s struggles on display]

    “We need a general election, and we need one now,” May said, “because we have at this moment a one-off chance to get this done while the European Union agrees its negotiating position and before the detailed talks begin.”

    British PM Theresa May calls for early election to strengthen Brexit hand

    British Prime Minister Theresa May called on Tuesday for an early election on June 8, saying she needed to strengthen her hand in divorce talks with the European Union by bolstering support for her Brexit plan.

    Standing outside her Downing Street office, May said she had been reluctant to ask parliament to back her move to bring forward the poll from 2020. But, after thinking long and hard during a walking holiday, she decided it was necessary to try to stop the opposition jeopardising her work on Brexit.

    British Prime Minister Theresa May has called for an early election on June 8

    British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will seek an early election on June 8.

    I have just chaired a meeting of the cabinet where we agreed that the government should call a general election to be held on the 8th of June, Ms May said.

    Speaking outside Number 10, Ms May said the Cabinet had agreed to call an early election.

    The move takes place against the backdrop of the country's decision to leave the European Union in last year's referendum.

    Justifying the decision, Ms May said: The country is coming together but Westminster is not.

    British prime minister to seek early election to be held 8 June 2017. | WORLD MEDIA CENTER

    In a shock announcement, Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday called for an early general election to be held June 8 to seek a strong mandate as she negotiates Britain's exit from the European Union.
    Standing outside 10 Downing Street, May said she would ask the House of Commons on Wednesday to back her call for an election, just two years after the last vote and three years before the next scheduled date in May 2020.
    She said that since Britons voted to leave the EU in June, the country had come together, but politicians had not. She said the political divisions risk our ability to make a success of Brexit.
    At present, May's governing Conservatives have a small majority, with 330 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons.
    With the main opposition Labour Party weakened and divided under left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn and the pro-EU Liberal Democrats holding just nine Commons seats, May is calculating that the election will bring her an expanded crop of Conservative lawmakers.
    British prime minister to seek early election:
    That would make it easier for her to ignore opposition calls for a softer EU exit — making compromises to retain some benefits of membership — and to face down hardliners within her own party who want a no-compromise hard Brexit that many economists fear could be devastating.
    May triggered a two-year countdown to Britain's exit from the EU last month, and high-stakes negotiations to settle divorce terms and agree on a new relationship are expected to start within weeks.
    European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted that he had a good phone call with May about the election, and the council said the bloc's Brexit plans were unchanged by the announcement. Leaders of EU states are due to adopt negotiating guidelines at an April 29 summit, and the bloc will prepare detailed plans for the talks with Britain by late May.
    May took office in July following an internal Conservative leadership contest, after predecessor David Cameron stepped down when voters rejected his call to remain in the EU. Since then she had repeatedly ruled out calling an early election to get her own mandate.

    British PM Theresa May announces snap general election to be held on June 8

    2:03

    메이 총리 '영국 6월 8일 조기 총선 할것'
    British Prime Minister Theresa May has called a snap general election for June eighth.
    She told the British people that the country needed stability and a strong hand in its ongoing Brexit negotiations with the EU.
    Lee Unshin reports.
    In a sudden announcement outside her Downing Street office in London...UK Prime Minister Theresa May triggered the process for a snap election.



    I have just chaired a meeting of the cabinet where we agreed that the government should call a General Election to be held on the 8th of June...Since I became Prime minister I have said there should be no election until 2020, but now I have concluded that the only way to guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead, is to hold this election and seek your support for the decisions I must take.

    In her statement she addressed the opposing voices of Britain's decision to leave the European Union...such as the Liberal Democrats, and the Scottish National Party.
    Stressing that the continued political division in the nation will only weaken the government's negotiating position in Europe, May said with reluctance, but with strong conviction, that she decided the country needs the early election.
    But the prime minister also highlighted that Britain still needs to seek the right plan to achieve a new deep, special partnership with Europe.
    May is expected to begin working on the early election process by introducing a new legislation on Wednesday. As of now, the next election is scheduled to take place in 2020.
    For the election to go ahead in June 8 though, she must secure a two thirds majority in parliament in a vote to take place on Wednesday in the House of Commons.
    Theresa May came to power following former Prime Minister David Cameron's resignation in the wake of the national vote to leave the European Union in July 2016.

    British PM May calls for early election to strengthen Brexit hand

    2:36

    British Prime Minister Theresa May called on Tuesday for an early election on June 8, saying she needed to strengthen her hand in divorce talks with the European Union by shoring up support for her Brexit plan.

    Standing outside her Downing Street office, May said she had been reluctant about asking parliament to back her move to bring forward the election from 2020, but decided it was necessary to win support for her ruling Conservative Party's efforts to press ahead with Britain's departure from the EU.

    Some were surprised by her move - she has repeatedly said she does not want to be distracted by time-consuming campaigning - but opinion polls give her a strong lead and she has faced opposition from her own party for her some of domestic reforms.

    The pound strengthened by almost half a cent against the dollar and 10-year British government bond yields rose slightly after the announcement.

    It was with reluctance that I decided the country needs this election, but it is with strong conviction that I say it is necessary to secure the strong and stable leadership the country needs to see us through Brexit and beyond, she said.

    Every vote for the Conservatives will make it harder for opposition politicians who want to stop me from getting the job done.

    May is capitalising on her runaway lead in the opinion polls. The Conservative Party is around 20 points ahead of the main opposition Labour Party, a large lead for an incumbent party two years after the last parliamentary election.

    The prime minister's own personal ratings also dwarf those of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, with 50 percent of those asked saying she would make the best prime minister. Corbyn wins only 14 percent, according to pollster YouGov.

    But before holding the election, May must first win the support of two-thirds of the parliament in a vote on Wednesday. Labour said it will vote in favour of a new election, meaning she should be able to get it through.

    The decision facing the country will be all about leadership, May said.

    It will be a choice between strong and stable leadership in the national interest with me as your prime minister, or weak and unstable coalition government, led by Jeremy Corbyn, propped up by the Liberal Democrats who want to reopen the division of the referendum.

    May will hope the election will boost her slim majority in parliament and give her a new mandate to put her stamp on domestic reforms in education and health and strengthen her hand in talks with the EU, which will start in earnest in June.
