British opposition parties to discuss snap election

TOLGA AKMEN / AFP

Opposition parties in the UK are set to discuss how they’ll reply to Boris Johnson’s bid to call a snap election.

On Thursday the British Prime Minister said he would rather “die in a ditch: than delay the scheduled departure from the European Union (EU) on October 31. 

MP’s will now hold a vote on Monday to decide if they will hold an early election, which would most likely take place in mid-October. 

Those against a quick general election say it’s being used as a distraction by Boris Johnson’s government as they attempt to leave the EU without a deal.

Opposition parties by and large want to avert the threat of a no-deal exit.
