Times: Johnson plans to hold early elections in the UK by the summer of 2020

The policy team is going to adjust the election campaign of the Tories.

Favorite of the election race for the posts of the leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson intends to hold early General elections in the UK by the summer of 2020. This was reported on Wednesday by The Times newspaper, citing supporters of the former head of the British Foreign Ministry.

According to them, Johnson’s team is going to make “decisive adjustments” in the election campaign of the Tories, and preparation for them has already begun. One of his assistant sir Edward Lister seeks, according to the publication, to attract new supporters to the party and more funds from sponsors in order to ensure the successful preparation for the elections.

“There is a desire to hold the elections as the labor party was led by [Jeremy] Corbyn – said the publication of one of the supporters of Johnson. – This party is divided – “Brexit” struck them a powerful blow. Labor is not ready to vote.”

At the same time, as the Times notes, Johnson’s spokesperson said, ” there are no plans to hold elections until 2022 yet.” “The main attention is paid to the victory in the campaign” for the posts of the leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.

The UK was due to leave the EU on March 29, 2019, two years after giving written notice of withdrawal. However, members of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom three times rejected the draft agreement on the terms of “Brexit,” which Prime Minister Theresa May reached during negotiations with European leaders. As a result, the EU agreed to postpone “Brexit” date first to April – May, then – on October 31.
