British PM calls for early general election on June 8

London: British Prime Minister Theresa May today called for snap elections on June 8 in a surprise move that stunned her allies as well as opponents, asserting that it is the only way to guarantee political stability in the country for years after the UK leaves the European Union.

Prime Minister May, who had repeatedly denied that she would call an election before the next scheduled poll in 2020, indicated that the early general election will help unite the political corridors of the country. There will be a House of Commons vote on the proposed election tomorrow and May will need Parliament's backing to hold a vote before 2020.

Explaining her change of heart on an early election, May said: "I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election".

Speaking outside her Downing Street residence in London, May, 60, accused Britain's other political parties of "game playing", saying this risks "our ability to make a success of Brexit and it will cause damaging uncertainty and instability to the country".

She said at this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division.
