Johnson says he does not want elections and calls not to delay the exit

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday he did not want elections and called on lawmakers not to vote for a new postponement to leave the European Union.

On Wednesday, lawmakers plan to pass legislation that would force Johnson to demand an extension of Britain’s exit from the European Union, now due on October 31.

“If they do (vote for a delay), they will cause problems for the UK situation and make any future negotiations completely impossible,” Johnson said in a statement to the prime minister’s office.

“I don’t want elections. You don’t want elections. Let us go on the agenda of the people.”
