UK Prime Minister Will Not Call for Early Election

London, March 08 (QNA) – British Prime Minister Theresa May will not call a snap election despite former Tory leader William Hague’s suggestion that securing a bigger Commons majority would make it easier to deliver a successful Brexit.

Local media reported that May has been “clear and consistent in her position, and that she does not think there should be an early general election.

Hague said the prime minister could reduce the risk of further parliamentary stand-offs over Brexit if she won a “decisive” majority and warned her that different factions will inevitably find parts of the exit deal “difficult to stomach”.

The ex-foreign secretary is the most senior Conservative figure to join the calls for an early election, which many in the party believe will deliver a thumping victory for May given Labor’s dire showings in opinion polls.

Writing in the Telegraph, Hague urged May to repeal the Act in the interests of the country as it leaves the EU. “We have a new prime minister and cabinet facing the most complex challenges of modern times: Brexit negotiations, the Trump administration, the threat from Scottish nationalists, and many other issues,” he said.
