The next general election in the United Kingdom is scheduled to be held on May 5, 2022, under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011.
But The Sunday Times reported on September 23rd that Theresa May's aides had secretly been planning for a snap election in November this year.
It was claimed that in response to the fallout from the EU summit in Salzburg in September 2018 by "war-gaming" a vote was needed to win backing for a new Brexit plan.
One aide reportedly asked another: “What are you doing in November — because I think we are going to need an election.”
It was also claimed that another member of her inner circle had said she was planning to stand down next summer in a bid to prevent ministerial resignations now to force her out.
The date of the last general election was June 8, 2017, which saw the Conservatives lose their majority but remain in Government after they struck a deal with the DUP. - Posted on : 29-September-2018
