British PM Theresa May announces snap election on May 8 in surprise announcement
British PM Theresa May announced there would be snap general elections in Britain on May 8.
British PM Theresa May was expected to make a surprise announcement at Downing Street after her cabinet meets on Tuesday, fueling rumous of snap general election.
In an unusual move Mrs. May did not announce what the subject of her statement would be about. Downing Street has always denied she will call a vote before the next scheduled poll in 2020.
The Fixed-Term Parliaments Act sets the general election date as the first Thursday in May every five years, meaning 2020 is the next expected contest.
But Mrs May could call an early election if two-thirds of MPs in the Commons vote for it and Jeremy Corbyn has previously indicated Labour would support such a move.
