Opposition will not support Johnson’s proposal for early parliamentary elections

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — British Labor will not support the proposal of Prime Minister Conservative Boris Johnson to hold early parliamentary elections on December 12, said Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Johnson announced that on Monday he would submit a proposal to the parliament to hold early elections, linking them to the need for consideration and adoption by Parliament of an agreement with the EU on Brexit.

At the same time, the opposition said that it was also ready for the elections, but its priority was to guarantee that Britain would not leave the EU without an agreement.

According to the opposition, Johnson can hold elections, after which he will create the conditions for Britain to leave the EU without an agreement, which she actually achieves from the day she was appointed prime minister.

“Eliminate the possibility of Britain leaving the EU without an agreement, and we will support the election. I called for early elections from the very beginning, because the country needs to solve the problems of social injustice. But for this, the probability of Brexit without a deal should be excluded,” Corbin told British reporters.

Against Johnson’s proposal for an extraordinary election, libdem will vote. Since the opposition came out with an agreed position, it is highly likely that the parliament will not support the election proposal. Johnson needs two-thirds of the votes of the members of the House of Commons to announce them.
