General election set for December 12 as Brexit was granted delay until 31 January!

Unable to break the Brexit impasse, the United Kingdom is facing a tense election period. The elections are supposed to be held every five years. But supposed to be held every five years. But this would be the third since 2015.

The European Union (EU) agreed to postpone Britain’s departure from the union for three months. The deep uncertainty around Brexit continued until Britain remained only a few days until 31 October, the official departure date for the EU. Although UK politicians still have not reached a consensus on how, when, and even if the separation will take place, the EU has agreed to give another adjournment.
With these 3 postponements, the EU has somehow prevented Brexit from negotiating a possible agreement on 31 October. This time, however, there is a flexible postponement. In other words, if the British Parliament approves Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal with the EU, the separation could be implemented sooner. Britain may leave the EU on 1 December 2019 or 1 January 2020, provided it has ratified the withdrawal agreement.
Johnson, who was Prime Minister three months ago, promising to bring Brexit to life on October 31 at any cost, was forced to ask the EU to postpone this date because of a legislative act. The other 27 EU Member States have agreed to postpone Brexit until the end of January. “The EU27 has decided to accept Britain’s request for 27 flexible adjournments until 31 January 2020,” said Donald Tusk, President of the Council of Europe. British Prime Minister Johnson said the EU had made it clear that an adjournment beyond 31 January would no longer be possible.
The departure of Britain from the EU was blocked twice when Theresa May was still prime minister. Three and a half years have elapsed since referendum on Brexit in which British voters opted to take their country out of the EU by a 52% to 48% vote, but the stalemate is still not over.

General election set for December 12 as MPs vote to break Brexit paralysis
After a flextension to postpone Brexit until 31 January and a decision to take elections on 12 December, MPs backed Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s proposal for early elections on 12 December. Johnson’s request for early elections on 12 December was rejected by Parliament on October 28th. He needed two-thirds of the deputies (434) to support his call for an early vote. It was Johnson’s third defeat in early elections. However, the Conservative Party’s motion for an early general election on 12 December was approved by 20 votes to 438 in the second vote on October 29 in the House of Commons, the lower wing of the British parliament.
Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s announcement that he would support early elections was instrumental in passing the bill. Corbyn announced that it would now support early elections as the EU extended the deadline in London, allowing the possibility of leaving the EU uncompromising. Although polls indicate that Prime Minister Johnson’s conservative party will triumph over Labour Party, the prospect of a new government is not as divided as it is now. This will be the first election in England since Christmas 1923.
