Polls show the lead of the conservatives, who promise to complete the procedure of “Brexit.”
In the UK, parliamentary elections began on Thursday, which will pave the way for a “Brexit” under Prime Minister Boris Johnson or lead the country to a new referendum, which may eventually overturn the decision to leave the EU.
After failing to deliver on “Brexit” by October 31, Johnson called an early election to emerge from what he called political paralysis that is preventing the country from leaving the bloc and undermining confidence in the economy.
His main opponent, labor party leader Jeremy Corbyn, promises nationalization of key services, higher taxes on the rich and another “Brexit” referendum.
Seven pre-election polls show the conservatives ahead of labor by an average of 10 percentage points, although in four of them the gap is smaller.
