Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2)

by Politicker

The Prime Minister moved a motion, on 9 Sep 2019, calling for a early parliamentary general election under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011.

The motion was put to a vote after 90 minutes of debate with the result 293 votes in favour and 46 votes against.

Most of the Labour MPs abstained together with members of the SNP party, thus rejecting the possibility of an early General Election.

The Government lost because it didn’t reach the majority required under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011.
