United Kingdom to call for elections on the second half of 2024

London, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, defended today before the House of Commons his idea of calling elections for the second half of the year.

The European country has until January 2025 to go to the polls, although the Labour Party, in the lead in the polls of voting intentions, insists on holding the elections as soon as possible.

This timetable also includes the call for the European Political Community summit to be held on July 18, which is expected to bring together around fifty international leaders near Oxford.

If the elections take place in the next few weeks, according to the polls, the Labour Party would obtain the victory with more than 40 percent of support, while the Conservatives would reach only 28 percent.
