The British Parliament rejected Johnson’s proposal for a snap election. To hold them, the Prime Minister had to secure the support of two-thirds of the House of Commons.
Now Johnson has said he will introduce a bill to hold elections on December 12, which requires a simple majority of MPs to pass.
“We will not allow this paralysis to continue. Tonight we will send notice of the introduction of a brief bill for the December 12 elections to implement “Brexit.” This Parliament cannot hold the country hostage any longer… We need to replace this dysfunctional Parliament with a Parliament that will implement “Brexit,” Johnson said.
