UK snap general election 2020
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is looking for a new way to reach his goal.
Calling for snap general elections.
Why? So that he can complete the Brexit process according to his plans, and leave the EU on October 31 without a deal.
- First: when British lawmakers have passed a law blocking a No-Deal Brexit if Johnson didn’t reach a deal with the EU before October 31.
- Second: when the MPs rejected his call for snap elections next month.
British Parliament vs Boris Johnson
The British Parliament, on the other hand, wants full control of the Brexit process without listening to Boris Johnson’s crazy plans and his government.
Who will achieve his goals first, Johnson or the opposition?
And who will have the upper hand?
Is early general elections the only way to break the deadlock?
And who will win it?
But before we start reviewing the latest events in the Brexit drama, let’s remember what each team wants.
Boris Johnson’s Goal
No going back to Brussel and asking for another extension.
No delay under any circumstances; Brexit will be delivered on Oct. 31.
Snap elections before the Brexit deadline on Oct.15, as it’s the only way out of Britain’s Brexit impasse after lawmakers blocked his plan to leave the EU without a deal.
Leaving the EU according to his conditions and terms and sticking to his Brexit plans.
The opposition’s and conservative’s rebel’s goal
- No Brexit without a deal.
- General elections will be held after Oct 31 to ensure that Britain won’t leave without a deal.
- Removing a no-deal Brexit from the options and controlling the Brexit process.
If the PM doesn’t succeed in reaching a deal with the EU and the Parliament’s approval or persuading them to accept the no-deal Brexit, the law forces Mr. Johnson to ask the EU to extend the deadline to January 31, 2020.
What is a General Election?
It is the UK citizens’ chance to choose members of Parliament to represent their local areas in the House of Commons.
General elections are held every five years, but “early elections” are held under certain circumstances.
Candidates from different political parties stand to the Member of Parliament in each constituency.
The party that holds the majority of seats forms the government, and its leader becomes the prime minister.
If no party wins with a majority, a minority government or a coalition government of two or more parties shall be formed.
General elections can be called at an earlier date in two cases; a vote of no confidence in the government or two-thirds of all MPs – 434 – to agree to go to the country before any election can be held.
That’s what happened when Theresa May called a snap election in April 2017 – two months ahead of its date – and it was approved by 522 MPs.
The next General Election is schedule to be held on May 5, 2020, but it might be next month, who knows.
Would Mr Johnson win an election?
After Johnson fired the rebels in the Conservative Party, who voted against him and passed a law that prevents him from leaving without a deal, the party is united now without divisions to weaken it.
The prime minister’s advisers see that Mr. Johnson could present the Conservatives as the party of Brexit and the champions of “the Will of the people”.
Johnson may win with a decent majority or tables might turn over, and he loses what was once guaranteed.
Man doesn’t always get What he wants, as many believe that What is happening with Boris Johnson is a big scandal that might end With his resignation, especially since all his plans have failed terribly.
But Why can’t this be what Boris Johnson wanted from the beginning? And will he be lucky in his deceptive plan to overplay everyone in the end?
